What Does the Department of Labour Say About the Training Duration?

Minimum Duration:
a) 16 Hours training b) 2 Hours evaluation
Total 18 Hours.

Theoretical and Practical Training and Evaluation:
a) Training on a 50% theoretical and 50% practical basis.
b) Evaluation on at least 30% theoretical and 50% practical basis.
c) Compulsory CPR evaluation.

How Do You Cover the 16 Hours Required By the Department of Labour?
The department requires that we divide our training equally into theoretical and practical training. That means that we need to do 8 hours theory and 8 hours practical.

How Will You Do This All in One Day?
Once you have enrolled and paid for your course, we will email you your manual, a workbook and links to practical training videos. We will leave the theory and some practical in your capable hands. In class, on the day of training, we will spend time recapping all the theoretical information and then spend the rest of the time on practical. If you feel you need more time we will gladly let you come back on a scheduled practical day to complete the course.

On the Day of the Course:
Make sure you bring your completed workbook in hard-copy as well as your manual.
