VBB is also sponsoring select candidates to undertake AIIMs Basic Awareness training

Select candidates will be given the opportunity to undertake the ‘Course in the Australasian Inter-service Incident Management System (AIIMS) – 22463VIC‘.

As VBB AVERT only deploys to partner agencies within State Government emergency response frameworks, an understanding of AIIMS is a highly valued tool that will ensure volunteers can efficiently slot in and support official response teams in times of crisis.

This training is a full-day virtual session with mandatory pre-readings provided.

More info can be found here.

Candidates applying to VBB’s training cohort (above) will be able to register their interest on their application form.

Individuals who are not part of our Taronga cohorts, or previously graduated candidates can register their interest by contacting us.

VBB wishes to thank the following sponsors for their support
