First Aid for Staff

 In gearing up for the new year, NaDEET Centre staff received their first aid certification in a three day training course. The course ended with simulation of potential incidences that provided the knowledge to assist colleagues and visitors in medical emergencies. It was a refresher to those who had taken the course before and just what the new staff members needed in preparation for working with groups.
