BABY BASICS, developed by the Resuscitation Council of Southern Africa, is a one-hour orientation program.  This program has been designed to equip parents and families on handling CPR and choking emergencies specifically focuses on INFANTS and NEWBORN BABIES.


The program structure allows parents to practice the skills with an Instructor prior to the arrival of the baby.  The BABY BASICS material includes a take-home DVD demonstrating the skills, an A4 laminated poster, and an A6 laminated key card which can be attached to the nappy bag.


As this program is “participation only”, no certificate is awarded on completion.


All BABY BASICS packs are also available for purchase separately at a price of R130.00 each, for sale or distribution to candidates attending any RCSA course.




The BABY BASICS program can be presented by any RCSA registered Instructor, providing they have the Instructor material on their RCSA Instructor Course Memory USB drive.  Current RCSA Instructor USB drives can be upgraded by the RCSA office at no cost.


Please note that as this is not a “course”, Discovery Vitality points cannot be applied for by the candidates attending the program.
