Course Overview

Australian Safety Professionals are a recognised national leader in technical rescue training in Australia. Our RII30719 Certificate III in Emergency Response and Rescue qualification has been built from the ground up by a team of Australia’s best fire services operatives, paramedics, confined space and vertical rescue technicians. We stand behind this program 100% and believe it to be the finest Mines Rescue training available in Australia.

We believe that not all Mine Emergency Response and Rescue Training is created equal. Due to the various electives, it is possible to deliver a very ‘soft’ course, or a vanilla flavoured course that doesn’t scratch the surface of real skills and knowledge required to be effective in a time of crisis.

Australian Safety Professionals have not taken this approach. Our nationally recognised course is jam-packed with all of the technical rescue units. We’ve done this for a very good reason – these are the real-world skills needed by Emergency Services Officers (ESO’s) on major sites in Australia. We have the best trainers in Australia who are at the top of their respective fields, who will provide interesting real life scenarios, specific to your work site, enabling you to gain these life-saving skills.

The RII30719 Certificate III in Emergency Response and Rescue can be delivered to both corporate and public students.
