  • Signing a Code of Conduct and Privacy Consent Form
  • Signing a Volunteer Letter of Agreement specific to the assignment
  • Physical health check and travel vaccinations (ABV funded)
  • Pre-departure briefing with the Project Manager (via teleconference or in person).

ABV volunteers participating in the AVID program undertake further pre-departure requirements:

    • Receive a Mental health assessment (ABV funded)
    • Receive a Dental check (volunteer to cover cost)
    • Receive a HLTAID003 – ‘Provide First Aid Certificate’  (volunteer to cover cost, existing current first aid qualifications are valid)
    • Undertake an Australian Volunteers Briefing in a major Australian Capital City covering topics such as security, health and safety, child protection and AVID policies and procedures.
