Vision for training leads to first aid business
FIVE years ago AWB First Aid First co-owner Wendy Barker had a vision – to provide comprehensive training to save services that offer vital skills for saving lives.
“I enjoy helping others out and have always been community minded. I am a volunteer with the local SES (since I was 18-years-old), I have also been chairperson for Relay for Life and happy to announce I will also be co-chairing again this year,” she said.
Mrs Barker and her husband Andrew started a business all about first aid.
Locally owned and operated, AWB First Aid First supplies the Whitsundays with professional first aid training, first aid kits and supplies.
“Our business is all about making things easy,” Mrs Barker said.
“It’s important to me that everyone has the skills to help in an emergency. I don’t look at this job as a job - I really love what I do.”
AWB First Aid First offers a range of options to assist clients in achieving their first aid.
Courses don’t have minimum numbers; and they service all the Whitsundays from Bowen to Collinsville to the islands and Bloomsbury.
The Barkers pride themselves on the comprehensive training services they provide, as they believe first aid training offers vital skills for saving lives.
Understanding that first aid training needs vary, they are flexible and can customise a course that incorporates all of your health and safety requirements.
They also supply a wide range of first aid kits and supplies for personal and workplace use.
In conjunction with first aid training and supplies, the couple regularly utilise their extensive skills and knowledge providing first aid at local events.
