Registration and Credentialing

SWEP has recently reviewed and updated The Standard for registration & credentialing.  If you are already registered with SWEP you do not need to register again, but if you wish to change your current registration status the new Standard applies from 1st January 2020. If you have any question please contact swepcaho@bhs.org.au

Why do I need to register and credential with SWEP?

The State-Wide Equipment Program (SWEP) registration and credentialing provides assurance that assistive technology is delivered by suitably qualified and skilled Assistive Technology (AT) Practitioners.

What level will I be allocated?

SWEP assigns AT Practitioners a green, amber or red credentialing level that reflects the increasingly level of complexity they can safely and effectively address within a specific AT category.

What criteria do I need to meet?

This credentialing level is assigned based on an assessment of eligibility, experience, training and skill. If you want to know more about eligibility you can click here .

What Standard am I measured against?

All registration and credentialing requests are measured against the registration and credentialing standard, 'The Standard'. To find out more about your profession or area of practice go to The Standard.
