What is the difference between First Aid Level 1, 2, 3 as regulated by the Department of Labour and Unit standard training as accredited by the Seta?
- The syllabus and requirements for Level 1/2/3/ are supplied by the Department of Labour.
- The Department of Labour visits businesses/factories/sites to make sure that they comply with all the Sections and Regulations of the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
- General Administrative Regulation 3 gives the requirements for the number of First Aiders, and set out the training requirements.
- Therefore if a business/company/organization has to comply with the OHS Act regarding First Aid, Level 1 is the appropriate course.
- The duration of the course is 16 hours and the validity is 3 years.
- There is no educational prerequisite to attend and successful complete level.
- Unit Standards are the ‘building blocks (bricks)’ of a qualification.
- A qualification comprises of a specific number/group of Unit Standards.
- Training providers must be accredited by HWSETA in their field, to present courses based on US.
- Qualifications by learners, are submitted to the NLRD the enable independent verification.
- Qualifications/ Unit Standards do not have an expiry date. (How does First Aid fit in?)
- Research proves that First Aid skills (particularly CPR techniques) deteriorate with time. No guidelines are available from SAQA to address this problem.
- The usefulness of the submission of individual Unit Standards on the NRLD if the learner is not enrolled for a qualification and the validity is not lifelong, is debatable.
- The credits for First Aid varies between 5 and 6. One (1) Credit equals 10 hours of training. This can consist of contact/classroom sessions, a portfolio, self-study. Assessment for the full US takes place with a visit to the learner at his place of work. The implications in terms of time and finances are discussed at the end of this document.
- A Unit Standard sets the minimum educational level on the NQF for entry to a Qualification/Unit Standard. The minimum requirement is NQF level 1 (Grade 9). This effectively precludes anybody with a lower educational level (ABET 1-4) from acquiring a qualification/certificate in First Aid.
- NQF LEVEL 1 equals grade 9
- NQF LEVEL 2 equals grade 10
- NQF LEVEL 3 equals grade 11
- NQF LEVEL 4 equals grade 12
