First Aid Training

When someone is in trouble our natural instinct is one of wanting to help. If you know how to assess a situation and react in the appropriate way, you will have the confidence to prevent a minor injury becoming a major one or even save someone’s life, whether it is important they receive immediate attention for the best outcome.

Uni-Excellens is a registered first aid training provider offering and specializing in accredited first aid training as well as basic life support training to the corporate, industrial, mining and education sector as well as private individuals nationwide. Our high quality first aid training and service provides the necessary sought after skills in the field of First Aid & Emergency preparedness within Southern Africa.

Our First Aid course is divided into three levels with increased knowledge and skill levels in mind.

A student must proceed with their training along these levels and must have a valid competency certificate for level one to be able to start with a level two course and the same for level three.

Applicants who want to pursue a career as paramedic officers, has to be fully competent in level three first aid, as this is a pre-requisite to start paramedic training.

First aid training could be most important course you’ve ever taken. In the event of an emergency, you’ll have the knowledge and confidence to deliver potentially life-saving assistance. Although many undertake training as part of a workplace requirement, these skills are invaluable in everyday situations and the course welcomes all individuals.
