Available courses

Thank you for participating in the NSWEC’s online training program for prospective agents. The aim of the training program and the assessment is to educate agents and electoral participants on their responsibilities and obligations under the Election Funding, Expenditure and Disclosure Act 1981.

You do not need to work your way through this course in a single go. Work at your own pace, in your own time. Leave a module at any time; return to it at any time. You can also print the modules for study away from a computer. The length of time taken to complete the course and assessment is between one and two hours.

A copy of the online training program content is available to download for your convenience.

Agent Online Training Program (PDF)

You must complete the NSW Electoral Commission’s (NSWEC) online training program which includes a multiple choice assessment before you can be appointed as an agent. The maximum number of times that you attempt the assessment is five and you must achieve a score of at least 80% to successfully complete the training program.

Following your successful completion of the training program you will receive a confirmation email from the NSWEC. If you do not receive your confirmation email, please check your spam or junk folder right away before contacting us, in case it is automatically deleted by your junk mail folder. You can be appointed as an agent from then. After you have been appointed as an agent by a political party, an elected member, a candidate, a group or a third-party campaigner, the NSWEC must be notified of your appointment.

We appreciate any feedback on the training program and assessment, please email fdc@elections.nsw.gov.au
