Quality childcare first aid programs
Childcare first aid is completed over the course of two days in 16-20 hours. The core curriculum focuses of basic first aid for children, on different injuries and illnesses. Students are taught wound care, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and automated external defibrillation (AED). AEDs are machines that are attached to the chest and supply the heart with needed shock.
Students need the following to pass a class:
- Complete attendance
- At least 75 percent on the written exam
- Good demonstration of skills
Students who pass a class receive a certificate card from St Mark James. Wall-mount certificates are available upon request. The certificates are valid throughout Canada for three years.
Recertification is available twice a week, 8-9 hours long. Other provincial legislation will still require you to retake the entire course.
Instructors can be hired for special training such as at-home training or for workshops and company conferences. They have different rates and schedules so send an e-mail or give a call to inquire about them.
