With 17 years experience in business and branches throughout the country, Emcare is positioned to provide an invaluable service to industry and commerce.

Emergency Care Training

Emcare offers specialised emergency care training including paramedic and first aid courses.  We also offer various training courses in the occupational health and safety and fire-fighting sectors.

Our courses include first aid training, paramedic training, CPR training, occupational health and safety training, basic fire fighting training, level 5 BAA (Basic Ambulance Assistant) training, and CPD point refresher training for registered health care professionals. To date we have trained over 50 000 people in various life-saving skills!

Safety and First Aid Products

We supply an exclusive range of first aid and safety products.  Since our inception in 1997, we have been continually extending both the quality and range of our services and products, to ensure we continue to be at the forefront of the EMS industry.

Medical Standby for Events

Emcare provides medical standby services for special events, where emergency medical personnel, vehicles and equipment are required.
Having a paramedic at an event ensures that in case of an emergency there will be prompt on site emergency medical care if any incident/ accident occurs.


Paramedic Training

Our main career training course on offer is the level 5 Basic Ambulance Assistant course, which we present at our training academy in Polokwane. This course is designed for those individuals looking for a career in Emergency Services, although many large mines have sent and continue to send their nursing staff and even security staff on this one month long intensive course in Emergency Care.

We also offer a range of short courses aimed towards companies and individuals who need to comply with the Health and Safety Acts. These training courses include first aid training, health & safety training, and basic fire fighter training.

Stop the Poaching

Our Hoedspruit branch is closely associated with Protrack APU (Anti Poaching Unit) which offers the industry leading Intensive Anti-Poaching Course in South Africa.
