The Cooloola Coast Local Ambulance Committee (LAC) is once again considering offering fully funded First Aid courses to community sporting groups and club,s as well as other community-minded individuals in the Cooloola Coast area.
The aim of this initiative is to increase the pool of trained first aid people in the area in the event of an emergency. Training will be provided by an accredited Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) trainer and will provide participants with a recognised First Aid certificate.
Depending on the community’s response, the course will be conducted on a Saturday in early August. Because the course will run for eight hours on the day, there is no requirement for any pre-course work as has been the case previously.
At this stage, we are seeking expressions of interest from people who are willing to make a firm commitment to participate in the training. CPR training is included in the course and those people who only require this component will be able to be accommodated.
If you are interested in attending this course, please send your name and contact details by email to Cheryl Zunic at email@example.com.
