The Training & Information Program (TIP) is a joint venture between Ex-Service Organisations and the Department of Veteran's Affairs (DVA).

DVA provides funding for training courses to assist volunteer compensation and welfare officers to work in the ex-service community. All TIP trainers are volunteers.

The program is managed in each state by its Training Consultative Group (TCG).

TIP Australia provides a forum for state representatives to meet and agree national standards for course content and eLearning modules. Click here for the TIP national website.
