Qualification Description

The PUA20219 Certificate II in Public Safety (SES) is designed for introductory level community, volunteer and emergency service organisational personnel to develop the knowledge and skills required to assist in emergency response situations.

State Emergency Services (SES) assist with emergency responses to floods, storms, earthquakes and tsunamis. They also assist in road accidents, search and rescue operations and often play a support role during major bushfire responses. The SES also assists in the development and implementation of local emergency management plans and the provision of community education programs.

This qualification includes the units of competency required by SES personnel to perform a range of varied activities including responding to disasters and assisting in search and rescue operations. It typically involves working as a team member, under direction, in responding to incidents, selecting equipment and applying contingency measures.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
