Getting the most out of your corruption prevention training program
This new workshop draws on the ICAC’s experience over many years in providing corruption prevention training across the NSW public sector. In this interactive session we will also learn from published better practice, and the experience of session participants, to determine how an agency might approach in-house corruption prevention training and achieve maximum benefit.

  • Workshops are generally only open to NSW public officials.
  • Places are normally allocated on a first-come-first-served basis with a maximum of two participants accepted from an individual agency per workshop, however preference may be given to:
    • officers from an organisation within the ICAC's jurisdiction
    • officers from agencies that have been recently investigated
    • officers with high risk functions
    • applicants who applied for an earlier workshop but could not be given a place

Frequently asked questions about open workshops

I am not a NSW public official. Can I attend a workshop?

Generally not, but depending on your circumstances an exception may be granted.

What happens if I apply but don’t get in?

We will advise you as soon as the next round of workshops is open for registration, however, you will need to register again.

What happens after I register for a workshop?

You will receive notification of your registration by email. Your application will be assessed against other applicants and our elegibility and selection criteria. Places will be allocated and you will be notified if you have been successful or not. Commission staff may contact you to discuss your application before making a decision.

What if I can’t make it on the day?

We understand that plans change and that you may not be able to attend. Because our workshops are popular and places are limited, we often have a waiting list of people who would like to attend. Please notify us as soon as possible if you cannot attend so that we can try to fill your place. You may also wish to nominate a colleague to attend in your place.

If you fail to tell us that you cannot attend, your place will be wasted and someone else will also miss out. Failure to attend without good reason may result in us refusing to offer you a place in a future workshop.

Will I miss anything if I leave early?

Yes, you will. Our workshops cover a lot of issues and usually end very close to the advertised time. You may miss something important if you leave early. Please do not apply if you know you will not be able to stay for the whole day so we can give the place to someone who can.

Do I have to bring lunch or refreshments?

No. We normally provide tea and coffee on arrival plus morning/afternoon tea and lunch if the session spans lunchtime. Special dietary needs can be accommodated in most cases.

Will I get a certificate or statement of attendance?

No, the ICAC is not a registered training organisation (RTO) and does not provide certificates or statements of attainment or attendance. Should your employer require proof of your attendance, please send us their contact details and we will confirm with them directly.
