Rave reviews for a dedicated trainer

14 June 2016

Our training department at Royal Life Saving Society WA conducts over 3,000 courses each year, teaching 30,000 people skills across the areas of first aid, aquatic rescue, pool lifeguard and pool operations. It’s always encouraging to have a course participant take the time to comment on their course via our Facebook page.

Over recent months we’ve received many shining reviews for one particular community trainer conducting these courses, with Tracey Harris mentioned over and over again by course participants who have thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience. They have mentioned Tracey’s enthusiasm, knowledge and interaction as a major factor in their enjoyment of the course and their confidence in taking the skills learned into real life situations.

Tracey has been working with Royal life Saving Society WA for more than two years, running about 20 courses each month, during which she teaches approximately 240 people vital first aid and CPR skills. As a Master SCUBA Diver she has also spent many years teaching not only first aid but also emergency first response and rescue scenarios in a water-based environment. 

Tracey says her approach is to make a course as realistic as possible, and relevant for the workplace or home where the participant will be using these skills.

She is humbled by the glowing reviews received from those she has taught and says it is very gratifying. “It makes me feel proud to be associated with Royal Life Saving Society and know that what we do really does make a difference. I have a lot of my students walk away with a very positive mindset after they have finished their courses, and this makes me realise that I am actually helping with their confidence and knowledge. If they can help someone then I would be a very happy trainer.”

Tracey is keen to see people of all ages, from children through to the more senior members of our community, learn vital first aid and CPR skills. “It is so very important that all ages be taught the basics of CPR, you just never know when and where you may have to use it, and this will give them so much more confidence to actually step up and treat if they're faced with an emergency situation.”
