South Africa has a great need for skilled, qualified emergency care providers. The profession has grown enormously over the last 25 years. It can no longer be considered a job but rather a professional calling. A commitment to patient care, professional integrity and lifelong learning is vital to success in this career. You can qualify as a paramedic in two ways: University education: Certain universities offer a four-year Bachelor’s degree in Emergency Care (BTech). Graduates of this programme are qualified as Advanced Life Support practitioners able to provide the highest level of pre-hospital emergency care available.
Contact the university of your choice for further information on costs and entrance requirements.
A two year National Certificate is also available, the Emergency Care Technician (ECT) course. This qualification is also offered by certain institutions and graduates will work under the indirect control of a BTech paramedic. ER24 does not offer the ECT course. Short Course Education

ER24 AEA class of 2013.

Front row: Wynand Hawkins, Ignatia Ntuli, Belinda Letuka, Mueen Small.

Ambulance Emergency Assistant (AEA) – Intermediate Life Support: Four month course that builds on the foundation laid during the BAA course.

Matric certificate

Current HPCSA registration as a BAA for at least six months

1000 documented, verifiable hours of patient care experience as a BAA

Matric certificate

Current HPCSA registration as an AEA for at least one year

1000 documented, verifiable hours of patient care experience as an AEA

ER24 does not currently offer the CCA course but we are hoping to offer it in the near future. Please keep in contact with the college should you be interested in the CCA course.

Which Route Should I Choose?
This is a personal choice which will depend on many factors including academic performance, finances, location and personal preference. Many candidates who have recently matriculated, have the required academic record and can afford to attend university full-time for four years choose the degree route. Many others who do not have the means to attend university choose the short course route. There has been a move to discontinue short-course training in favour of university education. The latest directive from the ministry of health is that short course training will continue in its current form for the foreseeable future, until further clarity and agreement has been reached.
Employment in Emergency Medical Services
There are two major employers in the emergency services industry, namely the government and private emergency services. Minimum requirements are typically HPCSA registration as a BAA, a valid driver’s licence and a Professional Driving Permit (PDP).
There is currently an oversupply of BLS providers in the country. BLS practitioners may need perseverance and commitment to secure full-time employment in the industry.
There is a significant demand for ILS and ALS providers. As such, the demand for training in these areas is high. Please note that the ER24 Training Academy does not facilitate employment and completion of one of our courses does not imply automatic employment with the company.

How to make thousands with Bitcoin in South Africa

In the past 6 months, media outlets around the world reported an increase in the value of Bitcoin. We hear about a new millionaire every single day!
The millionaire spectrum is wide – we heard of a pizza maker that agreed to accept a Bitcoin payment, a transaction that turned into 25 million dollars years later! As well as the 17-year-old who invested a 1000 dollar and turned his family into millionaires! Those visionaries recognized the rare opportunity Bitcoin had to offer and made a small investment that turned into a huge profit

Want to join the global success of Bitcoin?

Sure, you do! So, to get you closer to the party and to a deeper understanding of Bitcoin, we created a simple yet thorough guide to provide you with the simplest, quickest, safest way to invest in the coin that is sweeping the whole world:

First of all, what is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is the first ever digital, decentralized coin.

What does that mean?

Digital means that bitcoin do not appear in a physical form, only on a computer and is stored in digital addresses across the web.

Decentralized means no financial body or central bank stands behind the coin and no one is controlling its distribution and production.

Gates: Bitcoin is exciting because it shows how cheap it can be

Bitcoin is an independent internet coin that is not bound or depended by any man, company, bank, or government.

The advantages of Bitcoin

No automatic alt text available.

The main advantage of Bitcoin is that it is decentralized – meaning, there’s no central bank or government which controls it or its distribution. That is the main reason Investors are considering the currency as some sort of a safe-haven-asset in a problematic geopolitical world. When governments are suffering financially, the people are also suffering from financial instability. We saw it happen lately in Europe, Russia, Brazil, and the United States.

What other advantage Bitcoin has to offer? there is a mathematical limitation to the number of Bitcoins that can be created, no physical currency is ever printed, so it works and follows the rules of economy. A limited supply creates a demand. When the demand goes up, the price goes up along with it.

Is it too late to invest in Bitcoin?

The answer is simple- absolutely not! Why? Since the Bitcoin was launched and until nowadays, it has only gone up without any prediction for a decline rate on the horizon.

True – the numbers of the past do tell a story – If you would invest 10 dollars in Bitcoin back in 2010, when the price of a single coin was only 0.003 dollars, you would have 3,333 Bitcoins, equal to over 13 Million Dollar, unbelievable figures to comprehend, right?

Billionaire businessman Sir Richard Branson says Bitcoin is working

But the good news is… Bitcoin is still on the rise and on the up! Just in the past month, between July 14th to November 21st the coin went up as much as 408%, from $2005 to $8200!
