Successful applicants will undergo basic training in situational awareness competencies. The training program will last one day. The format of the training day will be a 3.5 hour workshop-style morning session. This session will focus on introducing the principles and protocols for safety alertness and enhanced situational awareness of potential safety threats. This will be followed by a 3.5 hour practical session in the afternoon at various public sites to test the situational awareness competencies outlined in the morning session.
The location of the training will be determined in consultation with each particular geographical ‘community safety cluster’ of suburban neighbourhood in a specific region.
This one day training program is limited to 20 persons to maximise learning transfer and competency testing. A certificate of completion will be provided to successful trainees.
Once registered as a certified Safety Alert Volunteer (SAV), there are flexible options to suit your lifestyle and time commitments to serve your community in enhancing its safety and trust.
