First aid certificate is a win

A GROUP of women from the Women's Intercultural Network (WIN) got together on Saturday to complete their Apply First Aid and CPR Certificate.

The WIN group had applied for funding to complete their course and received a volunteer's grant of $1000.

The money was used to help fund the costs of the first aid course for those involved.

Lyndal Hanson said it was a fun and educational day.

“The course was well attended and provided a fun day and also helped with migrants understanding language terminology,” Ms Hanson said.

Another attendee, Chenta Dave said she now felt confident that she could perform first aid if required.

“I feel very confident after completing this course that if a real-life situation should come up I would feel confident helping someone with first aid,” she said.

“Indeed it was fun and hopefully we will all be more confident if a situation arises and have to use our recently learnt skills.”

The course was conducted by Clint Swadling from Safety Corp Pty Ltd.

The Apply First Aid Certificate is nationally accredited and provided everyone with essential first aid information for both work and everyday situations.
