This exciting new course is designed to give you skills that will help equip you for training and career pathways in a broad range of public service roles, with a focus on emergency and response services.

You'll cover essential areas such as teamwork and leadership, communication skills, public service legislation, diversity and values, physical fitness and career planning.  

You'll have access to learning support to help improve your literacy or numeracy skills and to NMT's gym facilities at our Northbridge and Joondalup campuses while you study.
