Public to be trained in First Aid
ATA International Training Namibia, in conjunction with its local partners Goethe Centre and HitRadio Namibia, will be hosting four separate evening functions in Windhoek as part of the 2013 First Aid Initiative, which involves discussions and introductory talks on the fundamentals of first aid.
ATA International Training senior medical instructor and advisor Fabian Martens notes that the purpose of the initiative is to encourage people to understand the advantages of first aid training and how it can be applied to everyday life.
“A number of people would like to do first aid, but are unaware of the processes involved. During these two hour presentations, which are free of charge, guests will learn the basic principles of first aid training from trained and highly experienced ATA International Training personnel,” he explains.
Martens highlights the fact that all evening sessions will be hosted at the Goethe Centre in Windhoek. “The Goethe Centre has long been a partner for ATA International Training in supporting our training courses in Namibia. What’s more, HitRadio is a new local radio station in Namibia with a wide variety of listeners. The station regularly promotes the initiative with on-air talks, and I am confident that we will achieve success with these two excellent partners.”
The ATA International Namibia’s first evening was hosted on 06 March. The next First Aid Initiative evening functions will be held on June 5, September 4 and December 4, 2013.
Every Friday at 12h20 ATA International Training Namibia and HitRadio Namibia provide First Aid tips and talk on the following frequencies: HitRadio Namibia and central Namibia 99.5 and at the coast 97.5.
