Maningrida skills up

10 August 2018

Maningrida community members, pool lifeguards and West Arnhem Regional Council (WARC) staff from core services participated in an intensive four day Aquatic Technical Operator Training at Maningrida Pool recently. 
This was facilitated by Mark from the Royal Life Saving Society of Australia (RLSSA), NT branch with support from the Youth, Sport and Recreation/Pool Team.
Participants learned all about chemical and water safety, the technicalities of pool maintenance, operation and filtration and how to navigate risk to ensure that swimmers in Maningrida always enjoy safe, comfortable and fun times in the pool. 
This training follows on from previous trainings offered to the community, such as lifeguard training and certification and first aid/CPR. WARC looks forward to continuing to support skills development in West Arnhem.
