PNG’s National Training Team

Two trainees in PNG learn their training material!

Papua New Guinea now has its first national wheelchair service training team! Nine personnel from the National Orthotics and Prosthetics Service (NOPS) and Cheshire Disability Services have completed a Training of Trainers (TOT) course in Lae, PNG. This training was focused on the preparation and delivery of the World Health Organisations basic level Wheelchair Service Training Package (WSTP-B).

This team is now able to deliver high quality basic level wheelchair service training to local staff and personnel who work to provide appropriate wheelchairs for people with a mobility disability in PNG. Congratulations to all trainees who worked very hard to achieve this milestone!
