In September 2020, the government released training to support civil court users when using Cloud Video Platform (CVP) for remote hearings.

The roll-out to improve the quality of video hearings was accelerated as a result of the lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Video hearings with the CVP are now available in all Crown and magistrates’ courts, as well as civil and family jurisdictions.

The training package has been developed in collaboration with the Family Law Bar Association (FLBA) technology sub committee and the judiciary.
