Simple.

1) Confirm the location you want training at.

2) Confirm Course Selection.

3) Set the dates and people that will be attending.

How far are you willing to travel?

Even though we are based in Edmonton, we understand that rural areas options in training are few and selective. We will be able to travel up to 200 km starting outside the Greater Edmonton Area.

Anywhere within Edmonton and the greater area, there will be no charge for mileage.

Any travel to rural areas outside the Greater Edmonton Region, mileage rates will apply.

Do you offer corporate discount pricing?

Yes we do.

Register 6 or more individuals at your place of business to qualify for corporate pricing.

Further details can be discussed as each company has its own unique staffing structure that we will do our best to accommodate to.

What is First Aid Training?

First aid training is used to give immediate care to an injured or suddenly ill person and there is no near by medical professional that can provide more advanced care.

Easy to learn treatments and theory are used to help with injuries such as:

  • Wounds and Bleeding
  • Splinting broken or damaged limbs
  • Early recognition of stroke, heart attack, asthma attack, allergic reactions and diabetic emergencies
  • How to use 911 and request the appropriate resource
  • How to remain safe on an emergency site

What does CPR do?

In short CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) provides mechanical assistance to a heart that has stopped beating effectively ( more on that later). When chest compression's are provided, this helps circulate the remaining oxygen rich blood to the brain in order to preserve brain function during a resuscitation attempt before other advanced care and an AED can be used.

The quicker you provide CPR, when you recognize someone's heart has stopped, will increase the chances of survival before help arrives (advanced care)

What kind of First Aid do I need?

First Aid training needs depend on your employers compliance with Alberta Occupational Health & Safety guidelines.

We offer 2 types of First Aid Training.

-Emergency First Aid with CPR/AED Training Level C

*An 8 hour (1 day ) introduction course that teaches the basics of First Aid interventions

-Standard First Aid with CPR/AED Training Level C

    • A 16 hour ( 2 day ) course that builds on the introduction course and teaches how to treat more complex injuries and illnesses such as burns, poisoning, recognizing illnesses and symptoms.
