Within SES through a combination of paid staff, and experienced volunteers these courses are run at no cost to the participant. All courses are run under the Department of Emergency Services Academy registered training organisation. Many courses once completed give you a nationally recognised qualification.
if you are interested in joining the SES please give us a call or use the contact us link on this website. We are always looking for new members as many hands make light work during an emergency situation.
Once you are qualified in a skill you also have the chance to assist delivering training, with a formal course available in training and assessment.
