First Aid Training, Midlands

Master Builders KwaZulu-Natal Midlands Regional Office is currently hosting level 1 first aid courses.

So far two, two day courses have taken place (29/30 July and 05/06 August) with a third scheduled for later in the week (14/15 August). There attendance record shows 12 learners per course thus far, with 14 scheduled for the next session, making it fully booked.

While cost involved is R550 per head, the Association does subsidize 50% of it for members. The training facilitator is Global Learning Services and as it is primarily an entry level course, it covers the following basics:
  • How to dress a wound
  • Stop bleeding
  • CPR
  • Clean Wounds
  • Cuts
  • Treat Burns
  • Assess the degree of injury
  • When an injured party can be moved or why not to move them
  • When hospitalization is required
Thus far the pass rate has been exceptionally good, well done to all who took part and good luck to those who will be attending the next session.
