NTE2024 will be in the regions! This means there will be various “NTE”s going on around the country in late Nov to early Dec. More details will come, stay tuned!

NTE2025 will return to EPIC Canberra where we will gather again altogether as a nation.

National Training Event is a significant undertaking, which means, all our events need to factor in components such as production costs for accommodation, catering, program elements (such as videos), AV set up, recording, venue hire, rehearsals, props, running websites, marketing, and the like.

At NTE we ask you to: 

  • Sanitise your hands regularly including before meals and main sessions 
  • Wear a mask if you would like to, in main sessions or elsewhere 
  • If you have Covid or flu-like symptoms:
    – care for yourself, including seeking medical help as appropriate – including from NTE First Aid Officers.
    inform your Campus Staff for support. 
    – do not attend NTE sessions, meetings or meals.
    – arrange for your travel home, as appropriate. 

During NTE AFES will: 

  • remind everyone of Covid-Safe practices (including that masks will be available for main sessions),  
  • ensure high-touch surfaces are regularly sanitised. 

AFES does not provide medical advice, treatment or transport home.  

At NTE, we seek to care and look after everyone as best as we can. We strongly advise talking with your campus group staff first about your needs as they will primarily be looking after you during NTE.

If you require any special needs assistance or have any questions please contact us or inform a campus staff worker to do so on your behalf, so we can do our best to meet your needs. 

At NTE, there will be people around taking photos. Photos may be used on social media and for future NTE promotions. Please email us at [email protected], if you do not wish to be photographed or appear in any of our promotional/social media materials. You can always inform the photographer on the day that you do not wish to be photographed. We do our best in abiding with ethical photography & filming.



Registrations have not opened for NTE2024. We will inform via social media and to campus groups when they do. Stay tuned!

Cancellations can be made up to 10 November, please email [email protected] with your details and we will refund your payment less a $50 administration fee.

Please remember that registrations are transferable till the 13th November, so in the event you cannot attend you are welcome to find someone who’d like to attend and they can purchase your registration from you. You may request a transfer of your registration emailing with your details and the details of the person taking your registration. There is no fee for transferring your registration to another person, provided they have the same accommodation as originally chosen.

We are unable to refunds and do transfers from 13 November as details will have already been confirmed and vendors will have been booked by then.

Unfortunately there is no discount or price variance for a part-time rego.



Get excited for a large, all-in session together! There will be singing, stories from on campus, a bible talk, and we will also have the chance to hear from some of the international movements that AFES partners with!
