We are a veteran owned not for profit association committed to saving veteran lives


The courses below have been designed for SMEAC by Core Security Training with the veteran and SMEACs interests at heart. These courses will be the cornerstone of SMEACs training regime with other courses being added as they are required, developed and become available. These courses have been tailored to fit hand in glove with the activities and events run by SMEAC and are easily transferable elsewhere.

Courses will generally be conducted in the SMEAC lecture rooms at the VTF, Camp X-Ray, via face to face and distant learning.

Initially these courses will be delivered by veterans currently in possession of Cert IV Training and Assessor (TAE 40116), under the RTO.

The specialist courses will be delivered by veterans currently holding qualifications in their respective fields, i.e. a doctor or ambulance officer instructing on the HLT21015 Certificate II in Medical Service First Response course.

Initially SMEAC will utilise current qualifications and adopt a proactive Recognition of Prior Learning, (RPL) approach to capture and develop existing competencies. D Coy (Training Cell) will maintain SMEACs database and competency logs for every veteran inducted into the SMEAC program.


The above courses will be developed by SMEAC and CORE during Phase 2 (construction phase) and delivery will commence as soon as the lecture room is completed and can be safely utilised
