MUMC encourages further safety skills development.

As external training often incurrs a significant fee, the club has established a training fund that helps subsidise training costs for members.  This is administered by a volunteer subcommittee which any member is welcome to join. Please email for further information.

Past successful grants include:

  • Level 2 first aid
  • Wilderness First Aid
  • Swiftwater Rescue Technician

To apply, please email and include answers to the following questions:

  1. Some general info about yourself- who you are, how long have you been participating in MUMC, what sports and level do you participate, and involvement in relevant club trips.
  2. Why you think you would benefit from the training?
  3. How will the club benefit from you participating in the training?
  4. A brief outline of how you may have previously shown other requirements for running club trips- such as your organisational abilities, understanding and following the clubs risk management plan during trips, awareness of issues in the outdoors and of activity specific requirements.
  5. Course details, i.e. name, provider, planned date(s) and cost.

If you don't receive a reply within a week confirming receipt of your application, please email

Fine print:
  • Subsidy is generally up to 100% of the cost of level 2 first aid, and up to 50% of the cost of other first aid training for members.
  • Applications must be successful prior to undertaking the course and monies will be reimbursed following evidence of successful completion (e.g. completion certificate).
  • The subcommittee cannot approve retrospective applications.
  • Courses must be completed before the end of the financial year.
