Initial ADOM training

Te Pou has trained a large number of ADOM trainers and ADOM champions since 2014 using a train-the-trainer approach, leading up to the roll-out of ADOM on 1 July 2015.

Initial ADOM training will now be delivered locally by those trainers and supported by Te Pou through the ADOM reflections e-message group. Te Pou will still run some initial training for ADOM mandated services, as well as offering ‘train the trainers’ days and refresher training events annually.

The next ADOM training for people who want to become an Alcohol and Drug Outcome Measure (ADOM) trainer will be available online.

Although it’s delivered virtually, the training will be interactive using a modular training approach. All training modules are free to attend and will be delivered via Zoom.

To become an ADOM trainer, trainees will need to complete both ADOM module 1 and module 2.

The next training modules will be offered in November 2021.

ADOM refresher e-learning

The ADOM e-learning module covers the essential items people need to know if they are using ADOM in practice. It covers both the implementation of ADOM and how it can be useful in practice.

While designed as a refresher for ADOM trainers and champions, it will also be useful as an adjunct to introductory training which ADOM trainers provide in their services.

The module provides a certificate of completion upon completion.

Note, the module is hosted on New users may need to create an account to access the e-learning module.
