We did the First Aid course with DDI. The instructor kept it interesting and encouraged us to participate and answered all questions throughout the session. He made sure we understood and even told us stories of his own experiences in between. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone.

I have attended numerous first aid training courses but this was by far the best training I've EVER attended. They are well informed, knowledgeable, professional and well priced. I would highly recommend DDI for all training needs.

NB: First Aid Legislation Change

Government officially announced, on Friday 4 June 2021 that, First Aid Level 1, 2 and 3 cease to exist (see the gazette here).

These have been replaced with First Aid NQF Level 1, 2 and 3 training.  For training providers to offer this training they need to be accredited with a SETA, which means the company also has to have it’s own Quality Management System.

All in all, this change means that the quality of the training and training providers will be better.

Why First Aid NQF Level 1?

iconsBesides the legal requirement to have First Aiders, it’s important to have someone in the workplace that can provide treatment should there be medical emergencies, such as heart attacks, seizures, excessive bleeding, burns etc.

First Aid NQF Level 1 will prepare your staff to properly respond with the correct medical protocols.  First Aid NQF Level 2 & 3 is also offered on request.
