How will the program be delivered?

The program incorporates many different learning modes combining interactive, self- paced and practical learning activities.

This is a boot camp, so there are lots of touch points, communication, core learning and extension learning opportunities. Each week
you’ll complete a minimum of 2 missions relating to the 20 core skills. Each mission involves you reviewing a short video lecture delivered by David Provan and then you will work through easy-to- follow reading material.

You will then embed this learning through undertaking workplace-based practical missions to test out your skills, respond to reflective practice questions and plan for how you might change your role to increase your effectiveness. You will interact with your peers on the program through an online message board as well as through 7 individual 2-hour interactive webinars led by Dr. David Provan. There is continuous communication, learning and technical support available.

FAQ's

Are there limits to the number of participants for each public course intake?

Yes. Each public course is limited to 100 learners.

Will this course be suitable for me if I am working on a shift roster (e.g., 2 weeks on/off)?

Yes. The base plan for the program is for learners to work through the missions each week. We have the flexibility to enable learners to complete multiple missions in parallel. We will work directly with individual learners that need a specific plan to accommodate work rosters or personal circumstances

Will the classes be delivered live or recorded in consideration for those working in different time zones?

Both. The webinars are all delivered live and will be interactive via Zoom. These webinars will be recorded so that if you are unable to attend, then you can watch them later. The short lectures at the start of every mission are pre-recorded so that they can be watched on-demand when you are ready to complete that individual mission

Will the live webinars accommodate a variety of time zones?

Yes. Each of the seven live webinars at the start of each Level will have two-time options to accommodate every global region at a reasonable time of day. Learners can pre-select the time that best suits them. There is also the option of pre-sending your questions and these will be answered during the individual session that you attend

Being a relatively new individual to the safety profession, how do you envision that this will benefit an individual with minimal background context?

This is a comprehensive yet accessible course to provide all of the foundational skills you need to be effective in your role and build your safety career. It will help you identify the areas of professional practice that you find important and give you a direction for future more targeted development after the program.

Do you offer group discounts?

Group discounts will be agreed with individual companies. There is the option of putting a number of people from the same company on a public course at a discounted rate. There is also the option to configure and run a dedicated program with just employees from the same organisation and supplement this program with other internal development activities.

Do participants have an opportunity to engage and collaborate with one another outside of the training sessions?

Yes. The interactive learning platform has a discussion board, and we will be promoting and facilitating support and sharing between all learners. The live interactive webinars will involve small break-out group discussion to plan and reflect of learning activities.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, Please email info@safetyfutures.com

Can I join the program if I do not live in Australia?

Testimonial

David is the perfect person to walk you through developing the advanced practice capabilities of the safety profession. The program contains everything I wished I had known 15 years ago in my first role as a safety practitioner. Completing the program really is an exceptional opportunity that all safety professionals should consider as part of their professional development.

Ralph has a powerful and lasting impact on the people and organisations he works with I was responsible for delivering a multibillion dollar upstream gas construction programme and Ralph supported me with a significant change agenda to transform safety performance and to improve capital intensity by more than 40% . As well as developing and delivering the most effective frontline leadership programme I’ve experienced Ralph was also a great coach and strategic thought partner

David Fry
General Manager, Field Delivery

I worked extensively with Ralph Shreeve over several years when I was the inaugural commander of joint health command, Australian Defence Force. During that time he coached and mentored key members of my senior leadership team to facilitate their delivery of material and sustainable improvements in performance. These improvements translated directly into positive business outcomes in value add. Ralph is fairly unique in being able to connect contemporary theory with practise to deliver powerful uplifts in both personal and organisational capability and performance.
