The Pontiac Chamber of Commerce hosted a first aid course at the Shawville Community Lodge this past weekend. A two day event - taking place both Saturday and Sunday - the course attracted 15 participants and covered a wide range of first aid topics.
According to David Pellerin, who oversaw the training, the course being offered was specifically designed for use in the workplace.
“We talk about more risk related environments,” said Pellerin. “If you’re working with heavy machinery, forklifts, if you’re working with hazardous materials, the protocols are more adapted to those situations, versus someone who is just learning basic CPR. So that’s the difference between this training and what you might hear of or see other types of training.”
A second course was offered May 1 and 2.
