First Aid Level 1 (16 hours) - Course Outline

The level 1 first aid training course covers the most important basic first aid skills required to manage common medical and trauma emergencies at home and at the workplace until emergency services arrive to take over. All companies are legally required to provide first aid facilities and to have an appropriate number of first aiders in the workplace – see Department of Labour website: www.labour.gov.za. This Level 1 first aid course meets the requirements of the Department of Labour in terms of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and incorporates the specific outcomes and assessment criteria of the SAQA-registered Unit Standard 119567. CPR in this course complies with the guidelines released by the American Heart Association, October 2015.

Pre-requisites:
•  Communication at ABET Level 3
•  Mathematical literacy at ABET Level 3

The Level 1 first aid course will enable learners to assess an emergency situation and to provide basic life support and first aid in order to stabilize a patient prior to handing over to the emergency services. Our first aid courses are designed to help learners to work logically, efficiently and effectively when assessing and managing an emergency by using a systematic approach to first aid. It is a practical, hands-on first aid course with emphasis on learning cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and using an AED as well as other critical skills. It includes: demonstrating an understanding of emergency scene management; understanding of elementary anatomy and physiology; assessing an emergency situation; applying appropriate first aid procedures to a life-threatening situation and treating common injuries.
