Mandatory Training

Mandatory training is training that an employee or contractor must complete if they work for NSW Health.

Completion of mandatory training helps maintain a safe and healthy working environment, and supports staff in meeting their obligations as employees of NSW Health.

All NSW Health staff must complete the core mandatory training modules with additional training requirements for specific staff, dependent on their occupation or responsibilities within their workplace.


At the request of the NSW Ministry of Health (MoH), HETI completed a multi-phased review of the mandatory training elements across the NSW public health system focusing on clarifying and standardising mandatory training requirements for NSW Health staff based on:

      • Statutory requirement
      • Requirement of the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (NSQHSS) and/or
      • A MoH Policy Directive.
