CQ First Aid and Safety Training have been offering training to the Gladstone and wider community since 2004. Registered as their own Registered Training Organisation in 2012 the business has continued to provide training opportunities ever since. Director of CQ First Aid and Safety, Paul Van Meteren said the business offers a mix of Nationally Accredited courses such as Advanced & General First Aid, CPR, Low Voltage Rescue, Confined Space, Work at Heights, and Gas Testing to name a few, to both the public and long-term corporate clients.
Mr Van Meteren was the winner of the Wayne Peachy Memorial Award at last week’s Gladstone Engineering Alliance Gala Award night. He said receiving the award was both an honour and a privilege. “It is a testament to the team I have working alongside me to achieve positive training outcomes in the community and provide a service that could literally save someone’s life,” Mr Van Meteren said. “CQ First Aid & Safety would not be the success it is today without the tireless effort and hard work of our staff. We try to provide a workplace that enables our staff to thrive and grow which in turn ensures a happy and productive work environment. We try our best to engage in the community and from that we are seeing positive outcomes,” he said.
CQ First Aid & Safety provides quality training, which helps them to stand out in the training sector. Mr Van Meteren explained, “We are not about pushing certificates out the door. We aim to offer each participant a friendly and supportive environment to learn the relevant skills for their course. Our motto “Training Australia for a better future” is evident throughout our courses as we strive to achieve high-quality outcomes in all that we do.”
