Celebrating our trainers with professional development

20 April 2018

We recently hosted a Professional Development Workshop here at our Mount Claremont Headquaters, with over 50 trainers attending to hear from five guest speakers on topics focused to appeal to our trainers who specialise in first aid, aquatic, resuscitation and Heart Beat Club.

Community trainers attending the PD session at Royal Life Saving WA headquartersJonnine Rowe, Community Education Manager and MC for the day, remarked “Part of our ongoing support is to provide our trainers with professional development to enable them to be the best trainers they can be, as they deliver our courses across the WA community.”

The trainers heard from speakers across a range of topics, including: Epilepsy Action Australia – Facts, First Aid and Strategies for Swimming, Kids Safe WA – Keeping Kids Injury Free, Asthma Foundation – Asthma Awareness Education and Royal life Saving WA – Cultural Awareness Training.

At the end of the workshop, four deserving recipients were given awards for excellent service. Amy Tyers received the WA Certificate of Thanks, Kellie Battalina and Dionne Adams received the WA Service Order and Ray Holt was awarded the Australian Fellow Award.

It was a fantastic day of learn and we'd like to give a big thanks to all those trainers who attended and our amazing guest speakers!
