The Regroup 2 (R2) is the final component of the compulsory courses required to work or volunteer at SMEAC. R2 is essentially an advanced medical, first aid, course.
SMEAC understands that many veterans will have advanced medical skills, which will be identified during R1 and be dealt with on a case by case basis, i.e. an ambulance officer, doctor, or combat medic will more than likely be awarded an RPL for R2. R2 will be conducted in or around Camp X-Ray over a five-day period by qualified staff.
As R1 and R2 are compulsory components that will prepare the veteran for employment at SMEAC and must be completed or RPL’d before working or volunteering with SMEAC.
It is assumed that the cost to complete these modules be borne by DVA. Those who fall outside of DVA will be looked after on a case by case basis.
The successful completion of both R1 and R2 will ensure that all participants have been screened and where possible, assessed and issued with a Queensland Blue Card, have an advanced medical course and where applicable, been taught and assessed on first parade and safe operations in and around vehicles.
