First Aid Level 2

The level two first aid course is much more comprehensive than the level 1 course. It goes into more detail, eg: Treatment of Pediatric care of patients. This is our recommended first aid course, as it equips learners with an extensive knowledge base of first aid, and will ensure a high standard of patient care. First aid is a requirement of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993 and is enforced by the Department of 
Labour. The requirement is a minimum of 2 first aiders per company /building /section/level. The minimum ratio is 1 first aider per 50 people and it is recommended that as many people as possible in the organization be trained in first aid.
