We encourage our Bass Coast Landcare Group Committee's to send along 2-3 representatives from each group for these heavily subsidised places for Level 2 First Aid Nationally recognised training coming up on Wednesday the 13th of August from 9am-4pm at the Bass Community Hall.
Having your group members qualified in first aid is invaluable for hosting events throughout the year including tree planting, weeding and other activities that often take place in steep terrain and challenging environments. For $40 per participant you will receive the pre-course online training link (this will take 1-2.5 hours to complete at home, depending on previous first aid knowledge and will need to be done before the course) and one day of training to be qualified in Provide First Aid HLTAID003 including CPR.
Morning tea and lunch will also be provided and Bass Coast Landcare Network groups that book group representatives in will receive a free portable first aid kit suitable for small events. Limited spaces are available for this training and we would like members from each of our groups to be able to participate.
