NominationsNominations for all courses are now accepted through the online nomination process. This process must be conducted in conjunction with the procedures set by individual agencies in relation to the management of training and development activities for staff and volunteers.
Nominees may only nominate for one instance of a course type. For example if you book onto an Emergency Management Arrangements course in January, you will not be able to book onto another Emergency Management Arrangements course.
Nominations close 1 month prior to the course date, this may be extended on occasion if the course is not full by the closing date. If the maximum number of nominations has been reached for a course you will have the option to join a waitlist. The waitlist is for that instance of that course only and is not carried over to any other courses.
Selection of available places including any waitlisted nominations is competitive and requires an in depth assessment to ensure the most appropriate applicants are sent on Emergency Management Training Courses.
Factors that are taken into account include the information provided by the nominee, an individual's emergency management role within their organisation/community and diversification of agency representatives on courses.
Please ensure you provide the following information when completing the online nomination:
- How the content of the course, including learning outcomes, can enhance your emergency management role within your organisation and the broader emergency management community
- Your current and future emergency management role relevant to the particular activity
- Current and accurate supervisor contact details including email address. Your supervisor will be notified of your nomination.
You must ensure that you have completed all prerequisites before nominating to participate in a training course. Prerequisite information can be found within the course information pages.
