First Aid training February 2019

Channel Men’s Shed is pleased to have been able to arrange for 44 members and friends of the Shed to complete an one-day-first-aid course. The course was conducted by St John Ambulance and financed by grants from TMSA Grants Programme funded by the Tasmanian Government and Australia Post Community Workforce Grants programme.
Thanks to these organisations, and a top up from the Shed’s own funds, the three days of the training was cost-free to the participants. 
The 2019 Committee has expressed its satisfaction with the outcome of this initiative, 44 trained emergency first aiders in the Margate Area which supplements the installation of a defibrillator at the Margate BP station– and expressed its hopes that over the next years, further training courses will be possible.
