Childcare First Aid

Childcare First Aid

Childcare first aid courses are taught exclusively by a select number of provinciallyapproved training providers. St Mark James has two different childcare courses, Emergency childcare first aid and Standard childcare first aid. Both courses include training and certification in CPR level “B”. These first aid courses are either 10 hours in length (Emergency) or 18 hours in length (standard). These courses designed for people that work in the child care or daycare industry. It is also a very suitable course for individuals looking for more advanced babysitting training, beyond the workplace approved babysitter course, and for new parents. This course focuses on a number of first aid rescues and also involves CPR training. The CPR training included involves rescuing adult and child victims. Automated external defibrillator (AED) training is also part of the curriculum.
