More than 100 graduates recently celebrated their achievements during the Faculty of Health and Wellness Sciences’ Higher Certificate Graduation ceremony.

The ceremony, which was held at the Education Hall on the Bellville Campus, celebrated graduates who successfully completed the Higher Certificate in Dental Assisting and the Higher Certificate in Emergency Medical Care in 2023.

Acting Assistant Dean, Dr Lloyd Christopher, welcomed the graduates and their loved ones and said the road the graduates had taken was challenging but they completed it and excelled.

“You’ve made a success of your time at CPUT and now you can inspire others to consider a university education because they have seen you succeed,” he said.

“What we would like to do is to take what you’ve learnt from us and do to good in small and big ways.”

Dental Assisting class representatives Radhiyah Fakier & Faaria Shaik acknowledged the support of their lecturers and congratulated their fellow graduates on their success.

EMS alumni Sergio Amos and Ashlee Alpes shared their experiences in the field and thanked the EMS staff members for the role they played in their lives.

“You can never go back to being the same person you were. This is a special department in that it changes you and you grow so much as a person and a practitioner. At this time, I want to commend the lecturers, the management and the staff of EMS,” said Alpes.
