You should progress through the course at your own pace, however we estimate that you should allow 1.5 hours to complete Module 1 and 30 minutes to complete Module 2. The Diverse WA Team also suggests that you complete both modules within 3 months of registering. For those of you who completed modules in the older version of the training program, we suggest its now time for a 'refresher' as the new program has been redeveloped and content updated.
- How long does it take to download my certificate/s?
Once you have selected 'Finish' in each module, this will trigger the certificate to be produced and loaded to your Profile's Progress page. On your Progress page you will see either one or both certificates depending on whether you have completed Module 1, Module 2 or both. Please allow time for the certificates to appear. The time maybe immediate or longer depending on your network speed, browser or device used etc.
Please note, that certificates should be downloaded immediately after completing a module. It is your responsibility to download certificates from your Progress page once a module has been completed. Future redevelopment of the training portal and/or content may disrupt the hosting of certificates and therefore the Office of Multicultural Interests takes no responsibility for inaccessible or 'lost' certificates. Please do not request we send to you your certificate/s of completion at a later date.
- I've been nominated by my manager to collect data on all the users in my agency who have registered for Diverse WA and completed the cultural competence training. How do I access this data?
Access to the user data for your specific agency or non-government organisation is by request to the Office of Multicultural Interests (OMI).
If OMI authorised you to access data for the previous version of the Diverse WA training program you will continue to have access to your agency's user data.

To request authorisation, you must email OMI with a written request from your line-manager/CEO/Director/Executive Director or other agency/organisation authorising representative. OMI will then confirm your request by email and amend your regististration in our system for you to access data. Please allow 24 hours for this action to take place. If you do not see the Reporting tab in your Profile after this time, please email your technical issue to the Diverse WA Team at email@example.com
