Kingstonh Child and Family Welfare conducts first aid training

Kingsburgh Child and Family Welfare recently held a level 1 and 2 first aid training course, facilitated by Sapphire Life Training.

The training involved CPR and medical emergencies, as many accidents happen in schools, ranging from minor scratches and injuries to broken bones and other health issues that require a quick initial medical response.

“The aim of the program was to provide educators with first aid training to help reduce risk and give them the ability to assess and manage the situation in the event of a medical emergency,” said Sandra Govender, social worker at social assistance.

Level 1 and 2 training was provided by Antoinette Meyer of Sapphire Life Training. First aid training is registered with the Department of Labor and the certificate is valid for three years.
