The Netcare Education Faculty of Emergency and Critical Care
PLEASE NOTE: Recent Facebook and job advertisement websites have made mention of a Paramedic Scholarship/Learnership. Kindly note that this is a HOAX and no such scholarship is available.
The Netcare Education Faculty of Emergency and Critical Care (FECC) is all about empowering South Africans and their communities. Not only does it help individuals to act when they most need to, i.e. during a medical emergency, but it works to provide a steady flow of emergency professionals to our communities and country.
The Netcare Education FECC is the best-known school of prehospital emergency care in South Africa and continues to lead the way in defining the future of paramedic and advanced life support education. Cutting edge facilities and theoretical teaching are combined with practical training to provide balanced, world-class courses.
The FECC is much more than just a centre to train paramedics for South Africa’s favourite emergency service, Netcare 911. Such is the quality of courses offered, that healthcare professionals other than paramedics, such as doctors and nurses, often attend. They have commented that these programmes augment their inherent training and have provided focused insight into emergency care. Many individuals belonging to or who wish to join one of the other emergency services operating in South Africa also find the courses attractive. They appreciate the fact that the courses are so comprehensive and the qualifications so widely recognised.
The FECC’s courses are not only for the healthcare professional however. The Netcare Education FECC also offers an outstanding first aid course for ordinary people such as teachers, workers and executives. This course aims to equip individuals with the means to deal with all medical emergencies they are likely to encounter in their day-to-day lives, and empowers our communities to better deal with their emergencies and even save lives.
Whether you are looking for peace of mind in your home or at work, are interested in a career in emergency medical services, or you are a healthcare professional looking to upgrade your skills, the Netcare Education FECC has a course for you.
We look forward to welcoming you to Netcare Education FECC.
