New partnership to deliver emergency management professional development

12 August 2015

Today I am pleased to announce that a consortium has been selected to deliver emergency management professional development products and services on behalf of Emergency Management Australia.

The consortium comprises the Australasian Fire and Emergency Services Authorities Council, the Australian Red Cross and the Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre.

The Attorney-General’s Department will commence negotiations with the consortium with the aim of commencing the delivery of contemporary professional development products and services for the emergency management sector later this year.

This will include the delivery of professional development courses and workshops, school education program, knowledge management services and volunteer support.

This initiative demonstrates our commitment to finding better ways of delivering services across government. The consortium was selected following a competitive tender process.

The Attorney-General’s Department is also approaching the market to develop similar arrangements for the delivery of its emergency management vocational education products and services.
