CPR and First Aid Courses

Survival CPR was established in 2001 by Sr Catherine Rodwell who offered CPR & first aid courses on a “part time” basis.

We have grown significantly since the early days when Catherine identified a need to provide the “man in the street” with emergency training.  Today, Survival CPR produces and delivers a variety of emergency courses to equip parents, au pairs, teachers, medical professionals, domestic workers, school children and corporate employees with the knowledge and skills to effect emergency response when necessary.

All emergency training courses, regardless of the type, are devised with the attention to detail and professional standards with which we have become associated. Our trainers are all highly qualified ICU sisters who are still working in ICU, so their knowledge is very current.  We are both proud & passionate about emergency training and we look forward to sharing our knowledge and skills with you. We provide a number of CPR and first aid courses at several venues throughout Gauteng which are ideal for training small groups. However, if you have a larger group, we can provide nationwide on-site emergency management training at your workplace or venue of your choice to minimise employee travel and cost.

Learning basic life support techniques is a simple yet essential skill that everyone should have in order to deal with an emergency situation. So few people actually know how to save a life and yet it really is SO EASY!
