First Aid NQF Level 1: 2 Days - R925.00 ex VAT


Administering first aid skills quickly and effectively may well mean the difference between life and death, or how successfully a patient recovers from their emergency event or illness. Accidents or life-threatening emergencies can happen to anyone, at any time and anywhere.

That is why the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993 and the Department of Labour enforces compliance to this act, requiring all employers to have sufficiently trained first aiders and first aid resources in the workplace.
