Graduates of the Level 3 Accreditation Program for incident management roles attended a ceremony to recognise and celebrate their accreditation at the State Control Centre on 20 May.

A total of 31 graduates were presented with their accreditation certificate, a tabard and a pin to reflect their recent accreditation.  These graduates were accredited across the functions of Incident Controller (13 graduates), Logistics Officer (seven graduates), Operations Officer (one graduate), Planning Officer (seven graduates) and Public Information Officer (three graduates).  There were five other graduates who were unable to attend the ceremony.  These graduates will be recognised at other ceremonies.

The ceremony also recognised the largest cohort of SES graduates from the accreditation program.  A total of 10 SES personnel were recognised, along with 12 CFA personnel and 14 graduates from DELWP, Parks Victoria and Zoos Victoria.

The accreditation program recognises the significant contribution that personnel have made to their functional role and incident management in general.  Their accreditation is the culmination of a process of work preference analysis testing, professional development programs, functional and leadership training and experience across a variety of Level 2 and Level 3 incidents.  The graduates were accredited based on the recommendation of a multi-agency panel of experienced incident management personnel, senior agency staff and a psychologist.

Congratulations to all members who received accreditation at this event.
