When it comes to supporting the local community and giving people the opportunity to access a range of resources to achieve their goals, Melton South Community Centre gets it right. A hub for those looking for support groups or keen to take on short courses in a community group setting, Melton South Community Centre works with Selmar to provide accredited courses covering first aid training, CPR training and food handling.
The long-standing partnership between Selmar and Melton South Community Centre means they can deliver a valuable service to those in the local area with confidence. According to the community centre’s Program Coordinator, Danielle Clark, quality training, organisation and support when it’s needed have been at the heart of this effective relationship.
“We have been working with Selmar for the past six years providing accredited first aid and food handlers courses for the community. We have been and continue to be, very happy with their professionalism, the quality of their courses and their organisational systems.”
Selmar’s group first aid training is delivered at the community centre by our experienced, qualified trainers. The practical workshops present real-life first aid scenarios in a safe, secure and fun way that builds attendees’ skills and confidence for when it comes to handling emergency situations.
It’s safe to say that the courses are being well-received by the community, with 2019 booking up already. And while many of those who enrol are fulfilling a job requirement, Danielle says they are also clearly engaged by the subject matter and the way the courses are structured by Selmar.
“Everyone who enrols into Selmar’s courses with us is consistently engaged. Jacinta does a great job getting everyone hands-on.”
Danielle has recently experienced Selmar’s transition from offline learning to online accessibility and sees the difference it is making.
“Being able to let people complete the theory side of a course online is convenient and saves time”, she said.
