Training & Competence

In order to ensure that NESST provides the emergency services with a safe, consistent and professional response all members of NESST will be required to demonstrate competence in their particular field of expertise, with contracting members expected to ensure that their key responders hold a suite of predetermined key competencies. In addition to the core competency requirements there will be additional training opportunities based around simulation exercises that all NESST members will be invited to participate in.  These training opportunities will be delivered utilising a combination of desktop and live environment situations and be based on actual incidents which have required a response from NESST.
