EmComs Cert II course
« on: March 03, 2011, 11:12:16 AM »
If anyone is interested, the 'Wireless Institute of Australia' has organised a Certificate II (PUA 20500) in Emergency Communications course.

This is being run via state based WICEN groups.

The SA course is being run in a few weeks and details can be found at http://www.sa.wicen.org.au/calendar/calendar.php

You do not need to be a Amateur Radio licensed holder to do the course.

I think this course is already full at the moment, but not quite sure.

Not in South Australia. More the merrier...

Latest news item from WIA indicates that 100 plus are in training or have completed the course, from various locations around Asutralia.

Book via http://www.wia.org.au/members/emcom/emcomregisteronline/index_nonmember.php

The cost if you are not a member of WIA is $65, which gives you a 6 month membership. $30 if you are a member of WIA.

Further details can be found from Paul (VK5PH). His contact details can be found at http://www.sa.wicen.org.au/contacts/contacts.php

Would be good if the WICEN would hold a EmComs Cert 2 course down in the South East

Sorry, do not have the finances & not many members in the South East.

WICEN SA are fully self funded & insured. No government funding.

At the moment we are trying to find a niche for our volunteers to be used. Hopefully the course will be another step towards that goal.

Try WICEN VIC who (I think) achieved a grant.
