Emergency Communications

Emergency Communications Training

The SRESU supports the Wireless Institute of Australia in their provision of training of amateurs for activities associated with emergency communications preparedness.

In association with the WIA’s Recognised Training Organisation (RTO), TrainSafe, a nationally recognised training package has now been developed.

Training courses are advertised, with dates and venues.
Applications for a place on these courses must be made
using the “on-line” application system. The fee for WIA members is $30.

More infomation can be found on the WIA webpage:


Persons who have successfully completed training can then apply for WIA accreditation as a Volunteer Communications Operator. The application for WIA accreditation includes questions relating to personal health, fitness and availability, and only persons assessed as suitable will be awarded WIA accreditation as a WIA Volunteer Communications Operator.
