A fantastic opportunity exists for individuals and groups who are pursuing emergency response training. Risk Response + Rescue has been approved to deliver subsidised training under the NSW Government’s Smart and Skilled program.

This funding arrangement places RR+R in a great position to offer you or your employees access to government-subsidised qualifications. The NSW Government subsidises 65 – 70% of the total cost of the program for eligible participants.

  • No longer at school?
  • Living or working in NSW?
  • An Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, Australian permanent humanitarian visa holder or New Zealand citizen?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to all five questions, then you may be eligible to enrol in a government-subsidised course under the Smart and Skilled program.

For more information please visit www.smartandskilled.nsw.gov.au.

How are these courses delivered?

All of our programs will be run in several blocks of multiple days, delivered on-site in an industry setting. Assessment will be based largely on practical scenarios.

The key to our training approach is focused on making the learning experience highly realistic and relevant to the workplace. We take the “training room” to the workplace, to the actual environment itself, and create learning experiences that closely reflect the demanding conditions likely to be encountered in a workplace emergency.

Which qualifications are available?

Risk Response + Rescue is approved to deliver subsidised training in the following qualifications. Specific qualifications and course dates for each region will be confirmed according to demand, with courses commencing in March – April.

This funding is strictly limited and will fill on a first come, first served basis.
