The Belize Training and Employment Centre ( BTEC) , a unit of Beltraide , held a certificate ceremony for its Basics of Care-giving Training on April 28th at the George Price Centre for Peace and Development in Belmopan.
This five week training sought to prepare participants to work for and on behalf of the elderly.
The training included soft skills such as professionalism, work ethic, resume building and interview preparation; technical skills, First-Aid and CPR provided by the Belize Emergency Response Team (BERT) as well as an internship at the Sister Cecilia’s Home for the Elderly in Belize City.
This training was done in partnership with the National Council on Ageing and made possible through financial support from the Belize Natural Energy Charitable Trust. Beltraide expresses a special thank you to all who made this initiative possible
