Becoming a volunteer sherpa is first and foremost becoming a volunteer with all the usual registration, police check, ethics and so on that would apply to any volunteering. On top of that there would be some simple TrailRider training - it is not difficult. Most people are surprised on their first attempt how easy it is.
At each TrailRider location there will, eventually be a volunteer program. As they are established they will be listed here and you might want to pick one that is geographically convenient.
If you are on Facebook then consider joining the closed group Australian Bush Sherpas where you can privately chat with other sherpas
