Medical, WWCC, Identity?

 

For most training we collect a Medical Form, verify your Working With Children Check (WWCC) status, and collect Identity documents.

If this applies to your training course, you can click for the  Medical WWCC ID Form  ready for you to print and complete.

Tip: if you're an adult (or turning 18 within a year) and somehow don't have a WWCC yet, please gain your WWCC right now, this instant, without waiting a moment longer. The initial application can be awkward and processing usually takes a few weeks, but thereafter it's very quick and easy to update online. See more information at our WWCC page.
