CPD points and meetings
In order for healthcare professionals to keep themselves updated with the latest protocols, the Health Professionals Council has introduced the CPD Points System. In a period of 2 years, a healthcare professional have to obtain a certain amount of points in order to stay registered. Points can be obtained by means of attending courses, meetings, and by completing workbooks. Alderson MTEC is registered to offer CPD meetings and to give out CPD points. We are also accredited by the American Heart Association through Emergency Care Education to offer courses in order to obtain additional points. Courses that we offer includes:
- Basic Life Support for Health Care Providers (BLS for HCP)
- Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)
- Pediatric Advanced Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilisation (PEARS)
We are planning to offer additional courses in the near future. Currently, these courses can be arranged through Emergency Care Education to conduct it. These courses are:
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
- Intermediate Trauma Life Support (ITLS)
This course is offered in 5 hours. This course does not offer any CPD points, but is a requirement for Gym Instructors to have. It is also a requirement by law for airports to have Automated Electronic Defibrillators (AED) readily available. This course will help airport personnel to understand and use AED’s, and do CPR.
