Accredited HWSETA Training

Does your company and staff comply to the labour act legislation to ensure that safety at the workplace complies with the requirements in the act?

At Life Med this compliance is important to us, but more important is that we have designed our First Aid training to give you, the First Responder the confidence to respond in any medical emergency so that you may save a LIFE and not just receive a certificate.

All our First aid courses are HWSETA accredited in conjunction with Training for Upliftment and we aim to provide the highest quality of training on every course. Our training instructors are qualified Medical Professionals and are all registered with the Health Professionals Council of SA. All of our first aid courses are accredited by the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in order for medical practitioners to claim CPD points.

Level 1 First aid is the minimum training requirement to comply with the OHS act and Department of Labour requirements to ensure safety at the workplace. All levels include CPR and choking as part of the curriculum. All of our first aid certificates are valid for 3 years.

First Aid Training

We offer First Aid Training from beginner phase up to advanced Level 3 Training. Our courses includes both theory and practical’s to equip learners with both the knowledge and skill to perform life saving first aid. Levels can be attended individually or can be completed as a combination course for example: Level 1-2, Level 1-3 or Level 2-3 depending on your personnel requirements.

CPD (Continuing Professional Development)

Health care practitioners have a responsibility to continually update their professional knowledge and skills for the end benefit of the patient or client. To this end the HPCSA has implemented a Continuing Professional Development programme. Every practitioner is required to accumulate 30 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) per twelve-month period and five of the units must be on ethics, human rights and medical law.

Each CEU will be valid for 24 months from the date on which the activity took place (or ended, in the event of post-graduate studies) after which it would lapse. This means that practitioners should aim to accumulate a balance of 60 CEUs by the end of their second year of practice, and thereafter top-up the balance through additional CPD as each 24 โ€“month validity period expires.

Life Med offers a easy to complete CPD Activity Workbook with unique case studies that can be completed in the comfort of your home or office. On successful completion of your workbook, you will receive 4 CPD points and 2 Ethics points.

*Workbooks are available in PDF or Hard Copy.
