Maple Ridge First Aid School
We have been providing first aid training in the Lower Mainland as an incorporated company since 1985. Since those early days we have shared our knowledge with many thousands of students from other parts of the province as well as other areas of Canada and even other countries including Africa, El Salvador and the Caribbean island of Grand Cayman. Day, evening, and private group courses are available with a wide range of starting dates and times to suit almost everyone.
The goal of our team of devoted instructors is to ensure that our students receive a high level of training, able to use their skills in a responsible manner in times of need.
What’s new at MRFAS?

Surprising changes to the OFA 2 and OFA 3 courses
July 1st, 2018 marked the day when a large number of changes took effect in the OFA programme. They are too numerous to itemize here in the limited space available but the one that immediately stands out is that instructors will be conducting the exams. They take place within the timeframe allotted for the course which means that a separate exam day will not be necessary.
Emergency First Aid Bridging to Standard First Aid
Red Cross has received several enquiries about the availability of an Emergency First Aid (EFA) to Standard First Aid (SFA) bridging course. Canadian Red Cross EFA and SFA stand-alone courses are approved in most provinces and territories by the workplace regulator, but there is no approval for EFA to SFA bridging courses. Therefore, the Canadian Red Cross does not support or approve the delivery of EFA to SFA options.
How much homework can I expect in the level 2 and 3 courses?
You need to imagine a realistic amount of time you can devote to your studies; you cannot just do it instead of sleeping. Plan on 2 hours per evening.
Red Cross courses
Red Cross courses for 2018 are posted on our website.
Red Cross Instructor and Red Cross Instructor Recert
Red Cross has decided to drastically reduce the number of agencies that are able to teach these courses. Interested schools were asked to apply. We chose not to apply. You will need to contact Redcross.ca to find out who is holding your course of interest in your area. Time will tell whether Red Cross made the right decision. Us too for that matter. If you must travel further now in order to take your FAI or FAIR and it is a hardship for you, you might let Red Cross know and then once we hear from Red Cross we will re-evaluate our position.
Occupational First Aid courses
All OFA courses for 2018 are posted on our website.
