Classes and Training
First aid training covers a comprehensive list of classes, lasting 14-16 hours. Topics such as emergency medical services (EMS), wound care, a variety of different injuries, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillation (AED) are covered in the first aid classes. AEDs are machines that are attached to the chest with pads and supply the heart with needed shock.
Stand-alone classes for CPR/AED are also available to trainees who do not want to enrol in the full training course. Stand-alone classes for CPR are available in three levels (A, C, and HCP), lasting four, five, and six hours respectively.
Certificate cards are awarded to all students who are able to complete a program. To pass, a student is required to have complete attendance, at least 75 percent on the written exam, and good skill demonstration. Wall-mount certificates are available upon request.
Certificates are valid for three years and can be renewed through recertification programs. Standard first aid recertification is 8 hours long, inclusive of CPR level C recertification.
Fort McMurray also offers instructors for private training in the comfort of your own home. You can also book them for training for a company event such as a conference. Just send an e-mail or give a call to inquire about booking private training sessions.
