The SDS training team provide nationally accredited or client specific training ranging from introductory level safety or  first aid courses, through to comprehensive training programs such as Certificate III in Emergency Response and Rescue or Diploma of Emergency Health Care. SDS is one of the only companies supplying Medical and Rescue personnel that has its own purpose-built live Fire-Fighting training ground, enabling personnel to continually develop and enhance their skills in a real-life simulated environment.


In addition to the live fire-fighting ground, SDS has a high-fidelity medical skills centre whereby all of our Medical and Rescue personnel can undertake skills training run by our in-house Doctor, Nurses, and Paramedics. SDS can provide a complete training management service for you and your employees to aid in the ongoing management of your learning and development requirements. The services available as part of the training management service include, and are not limited to: 

  • Training Need Analysis to assist you in determining the required learning competencies required for your workforce and the best way to achieve this.

  • Skills maintenance, consisting of delivery of site-specific skills scenarios for continuous improvement. In addition to this we can develop supporting skills maintenance logbooks for your team to complete and track their continued professional development.

  • Personnel evaluations to identify participants that demonstrate qualities required for a certain position i.e., team leader etc.

  • Verification of Competency Assessments to determine the level of skill and knowledge.

  • Assistance in the review and development of learning and development materials.

  • Completion of online theory prior to attending classroom based training, allowing additional time on practical training and assessment and potentially reducing staff down-time.

  • Where any online learning is undertaken through the SDS Learning Management System, SDS can, through a subscription service, grant client’s access to view their employees course progress and records.

  • Shorter training durations where participants hold the current national unit(s) of competency and require skills maintenance training otherwise known as Refresher/continuation training.

  • Incorporation of site-specific forms, processes, such as permits, JSEA templates etc.
