PUA Emergency Management
This project is responding to identified gaps in the skills capability to build Australia’s disaster resilience. This includes the skills and knowledge to evaluate natural disasters impacts, manage emergency management centres, conduct emergency evacuations, as well as human factors in response and recovery activities.
The review of the Certificate IV in Public Safety (Leadership) is aimed at ensuring the qualification meets updated community safety regulations, industry skills requirements and changing community expectations.
The review of 12 Units of Competency will address essential skills and knowledge such as effective communications, teamwork, resource management, search and rescue coordination, risk management, fire investigation, and evidence gathering.
Four new Units of Competency will be developed to address human factors during response and recovery activities, community evacuations and evacuation centre management.
