First Aid-February 2021
“The Charlton Neighbourhood House recently arranged for its residents 2 face to face training courses that had until recently been unable to occur. To satisfy the many enquiries that had been held over from last year when COVID-19 restrictions came into place, a First Aid and CPR refresher was attended by 14 students keen to undertake or renew their certificates in these important areas. Established instructor Dawn Ferrier took the students through the various areas connected with their requirements, and hands on training was completed using specialised CPR toddler and adult mannequins. The use and practice of using an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) was performed successfully by everyone and participants went away secure in the knowledge of being able to help someone who may need emergency medical assistance.
Later that week Greg Currie came to Charlton to deliver the Responsible Service of Alcohol training necccersary to work in licenced premises. A mix of new students and those whose certificate had lapsed learnt about the various levels of alcohol in drinks, legal requirements, checking of ID’s, record keeping and much more. With heavy fines involved for those serving alcohol without a certificate, this course proved valuable for those looking to assist at their local club or seeking employment.
Coming soon the House is hosting a Safe Food Handlers Course, 1080 Fox and Rabbit Baiting, Firearms Safety and much more. The March 20 Barista Course is now open for enrolments. While not a Certificate Course, students will get a Participation Certificate detailing the areas covered which may assist with employment. Even if you just love coffee this course is for you. The best part; cost is just $25.
The Charlton Neighbourhood House encourages residents to drop in or call 0473759456 to enquire about what is on offer, or to express some activity you would like to have run.”
