RedR Australia launches new Early Bird Rates for its humanitarian courses

RedR Australia is proud to announce new Early Bird Rates available for its 2021 humanitarian training courses. 

After the postponement of our training courses in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have a full suite of our face-to-face courses scheduled for 2021 at our new venue, the Victorian Emergency Management Institute (VEMI) at Mount Macedon, Victoria.

In 2021, 235 million people will need humanitarian assistance and protection – 1 in 33 people — a significant increase from the 1 in 45 people a year ago. Professionals from a wide range of disciplines are needed to respond to this growing global need.

Our Essentials of Humanitarian Practice (EHP) course is designed as a first step for professionals who aspire to a career in the growing humanitarian sector, and our Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) is critical for those wanting to work in an increasingly fragile world.

"The biggest highlight from the EHP course was learning how I can work with others to make a life-changing impact with people and communities during a humanitarian crisis," explains Daniel Lambert, Australasia Water Lead for Arup who completed RedR Australia’s EHP course in December.  

"The course teaches skills that can be applied in emergency response situations with time-pressured scenarios that develop your leadership, interpersonal, decision making and time management skills," continues Daniel.

Both courses will be held in February and April at VEMI, along with our Humanitarian Logistics in Emergencies course in March. The first Child Protection in Humanitarian Action course will also be held in March in the Melbourne CBD.

The new Early Bird Pricing provides substantial savings off the full fees of RedR Australia’s courses. There are only a limited number of places available so if you are interested in booking a RedR Australia humanitarian training course, now is the time.
