The next step to joining the CFU is completing the Introduction to the ACTF&R CFU Program. This is an informative and educational program on CFU’s roles and responsibilities.
You can still complete the online Introduction to the ACTF&R CFU Program if are not applying to join. Just select the “Do not proceed with CFU Membership” at the conclusion.
At the conclusion of the CFU introduction, you will be asked if you wish to “Proceed to CFU Membership”. If you select this option, an application form will become available for you to complete and submit.
Your application will then be assessed by the ACTF&R CFU Co-ordination team. If you meet the joining requirements, you will be e-mailed your access code to the CFU E-Learning induction training program.
If you are under 18 years of age you will also be sent a parental consent form that must be completed and returned before the eLearning access will be given.
Remember you must live in a CFU Training and Recruitment Area and have applied for a WWVP card before you will be sent access.
