Welcome to Allmed Training
Allmed Training Academy assists public and private nursing institutions by providing them with top candidates that meet all the statutory requirements for entry into the various nursing qualifications. Candidates will all have been assessed on their basic competencies on the NQF level 4 framework. Nursing institutions make their selection from candidates who fit the criteria and that best meets their needs.
Allmed Training Academy assists candidates who do not meet all the statutory requirements, or who have failed the assessment. To achieve entry and access to the nursing institutions, you will be recommended to enrol and successfully complete the GED® Testing Programme. This international qualification that you can complete in 12 months or less, only requires a pass in 4 subjects. The South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) considers the GED® credential as comparable to the NSC (Grade 12).
Allmed Training Academy will verify your Matric certificate with UMALUSI, as this is a requirement for your registration at the South African Nursing Council. After meeting all our requirements, your information is included in our priority list of candidates given to the nursing institutions of your choice. No more standing in long queues to apply at the nursing training colleges. No more waiting for feedback. Allmed Training Academy will manage your whole application process for you. It’s simple and easy.
The aim of the program is to provide a benefit to both the Frail care Facilities and the Carers who are attending the program. The program will introduce Carers to the various aspects of Frail care and Elderly care in both an institutionalised facility (Frail care centre), assisted-living and home-based health care in general.
The essential purpose of this program is to provide training to candidates that will enable them to function as a Health Care worker in an institutional setting (i.e. Frail care or Old Age Nursing Home) in both private and public health care environments. The program will embed the necessary skills and knowledge required to take on the responsibilities of a Care worker in caring for frail and elderly persons. Successful completion of the program will also enable the Care worker to undertake activities of daily living (ADL) in caring for frail and elderly persons in the general home environment. It develops competencies required to provide a comprehensive home-care service in a manner that has regard for life and property.
Basic Life Support (BLS) training reinforces the Understanding of Healthcare Providers around the importance of early CPR and defibrillation, basic steps of performing CPR, relieving choking, and using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED); and the role of each link in the Chain of Survival.
BLS – Instructor-led Training
The BLS Course trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED.
In the Instructor-led course, students participate in simulated clinical scenarios and learning stations. Students work with an AHA BLS Instructor to complete BLS skills practice and skills testing. Students also complete a written exam. You require a minimum pass mark of 84% required.
The Family & Friends CPR Course teaches the lifesaving skills of adult Hands-Only CPR, adult CPR with breaths, child CPR with breaths, adult and child AED use, infant CPR, and mild and severe airway block for adults, children, and infants. Skills are taught in a dynamic group environment using the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which provides students with the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.
Family & Friends CPR is for people who want to learn CPR but do not need a CPR course completion card to meet a job requirement. This course is ideal for community groups, new parents, grandparents, babysitters, and others interested in learning how to save a life.
Continuous Professional Development (CPD) has become an essential component of a culture of lifelong learning. Providing proof of having completed CPD activities to improve knowledge and skills has become essential. In future, providing proof of having undergone CPD would become compulsory as the SANC will only issue Annual Practicing Certificates (APC) on receipt of a declaration of the CPD completed.
Proposed SANC CPD system
The CPD system that will be implemented by the SANC is in development. It proposes that all nurses and midwives should undergo such development activities following which an annual declaration must be submitted electronically to the SANC. A sample will be drawn annually for verifying the CPD undertaken and the selected candidates will be asked to submit their portfolios for evaluation. Portfolios have to be retained for three years. Should a practitioner not have completed sufficient hours, they will be given time to rectify the situation. Conditions for exemption from obtaining CPD points will also be made available. The proposed CPD points for educators are the following:
The points obtained for the different activities undertaken, can be used in any of the relevant themes but must only be used once. At this stage it is proposed that points be allocated as 1 point for attending as a delegate, 2 points for facilitating the activities and 3 points for developing activities.
In the meantime, Allmed CPD programmes are be developed and accredited. We will notify you as soon as the first programmes are available. You will receive a certificate and CPD points for attendance or completing the training. As soon as more certainty on the SANC CPD system is available, the Allmed CPD will be aligned with the system that will become compulsory.
