WIA Announces Proposed Emergency Communications Training Arrangements
This year the WIA has been considering training of amateurs for activities associated with emergency communications preparedness. In the July and September issues of Amateur Radio magazine, the WIA Comment focussed on issues surrounding amateur operator emergency communications, training and general preparedness. From the feedback received, the Board considered that a national accredited training system was an essential element in the broad range of issues associated with emergency communications provided by amateur operators. In association with the WIA’ s Recognised Training Organisation (RTO), TrainSafe, a nationally recognised training package has now been developed. The WIA Board has prepared a statement on “where it is at” in the development of the training package and a summary of feedback and issues. The statement and attachments can be found below.
