Training and skills

We run training, exercises and other programs for DPI, LLS and our partners. This helps us respond to biosecurity emergencies and natural disasters.

To manage these programs, we use an online learning platform called EMtrain. In EMtrain, you can:

  • create an account
  • enrol in a course
  • complete e-learning
  • register for face-to-face workshops

Login to EMtrain

The EMtrain User Guide [PDF] can help you create an account and get started.

Foundation courses

If you work at DPI or LLS, you need to complete these three e-learning foundation courses on EMtrain:

  • Working in Agricultural Emergencies
  • Information and Communications Management
  • Induction into DPI Response

If you don’t work at DPI or LLS, but want to take part in emergency responses, you should also complete these modules.

Response roles

In an emergency response, we will appoint you to a ‘response role’. This is the role that you perform during the response. Most people get trained and experienced in one response role.

Read about the different response roles in the DPI Emergency Response Roles Guide [PDF].

Participate in emergency responses

To participate in an emergency response, you need to create a user account and personnel record in WebEOC.
