St. Maarten Red Cross -Aruba Instructors Course

Red Cross St. Maarten is proud to introduce its two newly re-certified American Red Cross First Aid/CPR/AED Instructors, Reangelo Martiena and Julia Boasman who left the island last week for Aruba to take part in the course together with colleagues from the Saba, St. Eustatius, Bonaire and Aruba Red Cross branches.

Six volunteers from the Aruba Red Cross were trained last year by the Washington D.C. chapter of the American Red Cross and became Instructor Trainers for this new and updated version of First Aid/CPR/AED training. With this certification Aruba started to train and upgrade their sister islands. The training was very intense and at a very high level but because of the professional guidance of the Red Cross Aruba Trainers everybody passed their exams.

Before starting the course each participant had to do an online exam and had to score at least 80% before they could travel to Aruba.

"Due to large requests from our community for First Aid/CPR/AED classes, we are looking at possibilities to organize a next training session to get at least two more instructors certified so we will be able to better serve the community and get more people trained in the much needed skills of First Aid/CPR/AED" says Red Cross St. Maarten Manager Marjan van der Steen.

A big thank you goes out to the wonderful "Aruba group" for their great effort and support in conducting this class.
