VCC EM training is a comprehensive training package designed to equip members of faith communities to support affected residents through their participation in VCC EM deployments.

Psychological First Aid/Personal Support

The training course is a 2 stage process involving;

  • Self paced learning and completion of the workbook. This material must be completed at least 3 days prior to attending the training day.
    Face to face training day. This day utilises multi learning opportunities including teaching, discussion, personal reflection and role playing / scenarios to enable the trainee to assimilate the information and understand the context, roles, responsibilities and processes involved.
