Last week, Mornington Shire Council held educational workshops in senior First aid training, to build skills in local team members.

Council’s training coordinator Aleesha Menere said the program was run through Remote Training Service Cairns, Queensland, Australia.

“First aid training comes in handy for a variety of different situations in life, and can be invaluable when living in remote Mornington Island.”

Ms Menere says “many people receive this training strictly due to a job requirement, but it is a skill set that can benefit everyone’s life”.

“Council strongly support the capacity building of local staff, and specifically in first aid – the right class will teach you everything you need to know, resulting in official certification.”

“Our local staff now have skills in emergency techniques, which can potentially help them to be of assistance to others.”

Mornington Shire Mayor Brad Wilson stated council strongly supports training and educational programs for remote, local indigenous Australians.
