Martina Pascoe, Emily Holt and Teagan Scanlon learnt valuable skills from trainer Susan Johnson.WAGIN Community Resource Centre hosted a children’s first aid course on June 8.
It was a nutshell course that was completed over five hours to give parents, carers and community members a chance to focus on conditions such as asthma attacks, anaphylaxis and diabetes which directly relate to children and how to treat them in an emergency situation.
There will be several more courses presented from Susan Johnson of Allens Training Australia, who is an experienced trainer, with a wealth of volunteer positions and work reference as a part of her knowledge.
Ms Johnson has been a volunteer St John Ambulance officer for several years, hence her current position to train all aspects of first aid.
The next first aid course will be held on July 12 from 9.30am-3pm and the cost will be $150 per person.
All bookings and payment can be made prior to the course at the Wagin Community Resource Centre.
