NSW Government Smart & Skilled Funding

Smart and Skilled is a reform of the NSW Vocational Education and Training (VET) system. It's helping people in NSW get the skills they need to find a job and advance their careers.

Risk Response and Rescue Pty Limited (RTO #90774) is an approved provider under NSW Government Smart & Skilled Funding.

This training is subsidised by the NSW government, and we have the opportunity to apply for funding for Nationally Accredited short courses as well as partially subsidised full qualifications.

Smart & Skilled focuses on training to help people develop the skills they need to obtain employment, undertake entry level qualifications, up-skill in a specific area and/or transition into a new job role.

RR+R are approved to provide the below full qualifications under the NSW Smart & Skilled Funding in various regions throughout NSW, :

  • HLT21015 Certificate II in Medical Service First Response
  • PUA20713 and PUA20719 Certificate II in Public Safety (Firefighting Operations)
