First aid certificates extend carers' skills

LIFE was never off track for these lifesavers.

More than 14 members of Tweed Heads-based On Track Connections Centre received their Senior First Aid Certificate as part of a supported work program last week.

Another four people received their resuscitation certificates while attending the same course.

On Track is a non-profit community organisation providing a range of housing and rehabilitation services for people living with a mental illness across the North Coast Area Health Service region.

On Track co-ordinator Karen Collins said the possession of a Senior First Aid Certificate in their supported work program is an advantage.

“Receiving their certificates was a very important moment for them all,” Ms Collins said.

“The Connections Centre in Tweed Heads is all about providing a safe meeting place to help people develop life and social skills to improve their quality of life.

“This is one of the many things we offer.”

The first-aid training was provided by Surf Life Saving New South Wales.
