Emergency Management Training

VICSES delivers introductory training on the principles and practices of emergency management in Victoria.
As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), VICSES strives to provide high quality training that meets industry needs.


We regret to inform you that there will be further delays to the recommencement of the IEM Course in 2021.

We are aware that this news is likely to cause disappointment. However, we look forward to being able to recommence the course later this year (2021) with newly updated course material that reflects the most contemporary and accurate information with recent changes to the emergency management planning arrangements.

When the course is recommenced it will be delivered in a face to face format (in accordance with any COVID-19 requirements), to continue to deliver a highly engaging and interactive course that contextualises emergency management in Victoria and which also supports you building important networks with key stakeholders in your local area.

Please continue to watch this page for further information.
