Dedicated to Excellence


Recent responses throughout New Zealand (cyber-attacks, flooding and storms) have highlighted the need for organisations, nationally to be ready and prepared.  Readiness is one of the 4R’s of Emergency Management.  Is your organisation ready to respond?

As a ‘Provider of solutions’ we work with you to develop a ‘tailored training package’ that best meets the training needs of your organisation.  This training will enable your people to respond effectively to any incident (single or multi-agency).  This can be face-to-face interactive training, planning and facilitating exercises – single/multi-agency, distance learning via Microsoft Teams or Zoom (blended learning- workshops & learning experiences) or best practice workshops to upskill; we are ready to listen, tailor and support you further.  We welcome the opportunity to work with you long-term and act as a one-stop shop where your needs can be met fully.  We can work with NZQA unit standards or not depending on your people and their needs. Contact us:

In-House Emergency Management Training.   These high quality training courses are tailored to your requirements and delivered across NZ and beyond in a time frame and format that works for your organisation, this may be Distance Learning or face-to-face.

Whilst many organisations request in-house training, we also offer multi-agency courses in CIMS 3, 4 and Ongoing.  Multi-Agency courses enable individuals and small businesses to gain specialised knowledge.  Working in the Emergency Management sector since 1998, we work to the 4R’s of Emergency Management (reduction, readiness, response and recovery) and are able to identify what is required to build resilience and capability within your organisation.  In-house training is tailored to your organisation, working with your plans and procedures.  We work closely with organisations to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies.  With tried and proven models, we provide the tools that enable your people to feel a sense of empowerment and confidence in their ability to deal with emergencies within your  organisations.

As part of our consultancy services available to organisations, training needs are identified and tailored training packages developed. We welcome the opportunity to work with you long-term and act as a one-stop shop where your needs can be met fully.
