Training is held twice a year, usually at Perth Bible College or at designated venues in regional centres. The courses are called Fastrak Training and run either on Monday evenings for two hours over a period of seven weeks, or three full Saturdays.
During this time the trainees are also required to accompany an experienced Street Chaplain team as an Observer on the streets. This provides insights into the role and tests trainees’ suitability.
A fee of $300 applies, which includes the training, insurance, Street Chaplain uniform and First Aid training. A Working with Children Check (WWCC) and a Police Clearance is also required, and applications can be made during the course.
