Community Support

SMS Group is proud to support the WA community.


SMS Training Institute is a Western Australian owned training organisation. The Institute uses specialised training equipment to combine top-tier practical experience with real job tasks.

Our purpose-built, on-site training centre provides realistic operational scenarios simulated to match the complex safety protocols embedded in mining, industrial, construction and resource exploration work sites. We also specialise in simulated tasks for working at heights or in confined spaces. Our courses are primarily tailored for company training purposes ls who want to upskill their employees.

SMS Training Institute is also qualified to deliver staff induction training for FIFO customers, where eliminating site costs and loss of productivity time during inductions is hugely beneficial. With SMS Training Institute each employee arrives on site inducted and ready for work.

On the Road Again Tours

On the Road Again Tours is a motoring event for 4WD, SUV or any car that has the required modifications and safety equipment to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service WA operations.

In August 2022, the SMS 1992 Ford F250 ambulance joined the OTRA Tours ‘Convent Run’ to Dalwallinu. They experienced a small hiccup en route, with the ambulance breaking down. With no hire vehicles in the area, the team expanded their bash fleet with the addition of Rambo, son of Ambo to get the crew to their destination. 

The run raised much-needed funds for the RFDS, and the amazing rural work they do.

SMS Group Services sponsored the 12th annual Scottish Masonic Charity Golf Open again in 2021, with the event taking place on 29 October 2021.

The day aims to raise funds for the Scottish Masonic Charitable Foundation of WA and their work within the WA community.

Over the last few years, they have raised more than $60,000 for worthwhile causes such as Surf Lifesaving WA, RSLWA, Lung Foundation Australia, CancerWA, and The Salvation Army.

BulldustNBack Trial Event

In September 2021, the SMS Group Services Managing Director, Mark Welsh took part in the annual BulldustNBack Trial event in his vehicle of choice, a 1992 Ford F250 ambulance with a Windsor 351 engine.

The BulldustNBack Trial is a not-for-profit, four-day motoring adventure that leads drivers in wacky and wonderful old cars through WA’s outback, raising money for local children’s cancer and youth mental health charities. This year, the Trial raised $91,000 thanks to the overwhelming generosity of participants and their supporters.

The team will again fire up the SMS ambulance for the 2022 BNB event. Find out more here
