On-line training

Introduction to SAVEM Level 1

This portal provides access to SAVEM’s on-line training resources.

Introduction to Level One is intended for:

  • recently registered volunteers who have not yet attended a Level One workshop. These are generally conducted outside the bushfire season
  • existing volunteers to revise and maintain skills and knowledge.

This series of Volunteer Training Notes is written to work through in the order in which they are given at your own pace.

SAVEM is a 100% volunteer agency. The Board, the Coordinator, and the early volunteers now carrying out senior positions within SAVEM all carry out their roles around work and family commitments, and often too involvement with other Emergency organisations.

The acronyms and jargon you will find throughout these training notes represents standard Emergency Management terminology. It is there to help, not to hinder. Gradually you will become familiar with this. A Glossary will be added to the training notes.

We recommend that you read the Notes alongside the Australasian Interservice Incident Management System™ (AIIMS™), 3rd Edition, available from SAVEM for $16.00 plus postage.

These Training modules, like everything within SAVEM, will undergo continuous evolution and improvement. Your feed back is welcome.

Remember that Emergency Management training and skills are 100% directly translatable into everyday life, in the workplace or otherwise.

Introduction to Level One will become a prerequisite for the full Level One workshop program.

We hope that you will find the contents of interest and will encourage you to participate further in SAVEM.

Open book quiz

There is an ‘open book questionnaire’ provided as well so you can check your understanding against the Notes.

Open the Quiz alongside the Volunteer Training Notes provided on this web site. The questions set are intended to elicit responses direct from the Notes, to reinforce your understanding of SAVEM and its operations.

** PLEASE NOTE: This Quiz does need to be finished in one sitting, and you will need to press Submit button for your answers to be saved.**
