Sturt SES trains each Tuesday night at our unit from 7.00 pm to 10.00 pm. We further run technical rescue training at the start of every month which rotates between Saturday's, Sundays's, and midweek training. This technical rescue training is non-compulsory, but is a great opportunity for members to maintain and develop their skills within technical areas. Please see our Tuesday night training calendar and technical rescue calendar below.

In addition to weekly training, you can develop your skills through state run courses. A description of the areas you can train in is outlined below. This training is generally run on weekends, but in some cases, weekdays.
