Welcome to the ANTA Toolbox for the Alcohol & Other Drugs competencies.

How do I use this toolbox?

You may be enrolled as a student with a registered training organization to undertake specific competencies as part of a qualification, or you may be studying specific learning units as part of a professional development program. A detailed learner's guide contains information about the competencies qualifications and learning units. We suggest you read this document. You can print this document by clicking here.

Each competency is represented as a village. Within the village, the learning units live within the various buildings.

Each of the nine competencies is made up of:

When you are working within learning units, you will be directed to these areas and items, as required. When this direction occurs, you will find an underlined word, which is the link to the specific item.

How do I move around the village?

You can see what each village building contains by rolling your mouse over the various buildings. Clicking on a building will take you into that building and you then have choices for your next move.

Words that are underlined allow you to click on the word to move directly to that specific subject.

The back button on your toolbar can be used to return to a previous screen.

The village icon on the top right hand corner of your screen will return you to the entire village.

The building icon on the top left hand corner of your screen shows you where you currently are within the village.

The tabs at the top of the screen allow you to move directly to specific village areas.

When you are working within learning units you can use the navigation bar on the left hand side to the screen to explore the learning unit.

How do I get started?

Before you begin investigating the the toolbox you should check that your computer system meets both software and hardware requirements.

After you have checked your system requirements and you are ready to begin your studies, you should select the AOD competency you are undertaking from the index page.

If you are visiting this site for the first time, you may find it useful to spend some time navigating around the village and viewing the content.

You can always find out which competency you are currently in by checking the address bar on your browser. Remember, every competency has a number preceded by the letters "AOD". If you discover you are in the wrong competency, return to the index page to select another competency.
