Emergency Training Courses

Established in 2001 by Catherine Rodwell, Survival ran CPR Training Courses & First Aid Courses as a "part time" home business. Learning basic life support techniques is simple but is an essential skill that everyone should know in order to deal with an emergency situation. 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 encompasses a variety of emergency courses to equip parents, domestic workers, school children and employees with the knowledge and skill to affect emergency response when necessary.

Through demand and legislation, our emergency courses include Occupational Health First Aid Level 1, 2 & 3 Training Courses and conflict resolution in the workplace. In addition we provide early childhood development courses and conflict resolution for child/parents. All emergency training courses, regardless of the type, still include attention to detail and the professional standards with which we have become associated. 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 emergency training courses at several venues in and around Johannesburg which are ideal for training small groups. However, if you have a larger group, we can provide nationwide onsite emergency management training at your workplace or venue of choice to minimise employee travel and cost.
