Training courses and classes are available almost everyday, with certain classes on the weekends. You’re sure to have no problems with scheduling. CPR training courses are offered in three levels. Different levels are for different age groups of victims of heart attacks (cardiac arrest).

Trainees are introduced to the different algorithms and pathways used in rescuing people who become unconscious and are suspected to have experienced a heart attack. The American Heart Association’s BLS for adults and children is used in the CPR and AED classes, with a focus on the updated techniques and procedures.

Stand-alone CPR-only  classes are also available in the three levels mentioned previously. CPR A teaches students CPR for older (adult) victims, while C and HCP teach students CPR for older and younger (infants, toddlers, and school age children) victims. Classes are focused on skill development – including bandaging, bleeding management, and choking management, to name a few.

Certification and renewal

All training courses are workplace-approved certification courses. Trainees who are able to complete a training course are awarded a workplace-approved certificate, valid for three years throughout Canada. Renewal of certificates can be done through recertification courses. This provider does not renew expired certification, so be sure to get recertified before your workplace-approved certificate expires.

Did You Know?

Eye injuries in children

In case your child’s eye is injured, bring them directly to the ER. Watch out and look for any bleeding, redness, blurry vision, or inability of the child to move his or her eye. If there is any bleeding, use clean piece of cloth or gauze and place light pressure of the eye to stem the flow. After treatment, you can use ice packs and pain relievers for swelling and pain. Eye injuries often look worse than they actually are because there are numerous blood vessels on the face that get damaged and bleed profusely from an injury. If your child falls, gets hit in the face by an object, or simply gets into an accident, be sure to perform basic first aid before bringing him or her to the emergency room.
