|CPR & AED Training|
Learning First Aid & CPR is as essential as learning to walk or to read. First Aid & CPR skills are applicable in your daily life, both at home and at work, and prepare you to act on, control, and manage life's emergencies. Before a professional responder arrives to help, you can make all the difference in helping someone in need.
Canadian Red Cross First Aid & CPR training is basic knowledge delivered in easy-to-follow steps - we teach you simple routines that you can apply to a variety of situations, from small injuries and conditions to more severe injuries. This knowledge can turn you from a helpless bystander into someone who can save a life and has the knowledge and skills to help.
We created our courses with you, our participant, in mind - to make it as easy as possible for you to attend a course and retain the information.
Our courses are based on a combination of teaching techniques that include:
Courses are offered with flexible schedule options to adapt to your busy lifestyle. During the course, our well-trained Red Cross First Aid Instructors monitor your progress and provide you with continuous feedback to help increase your skill retention. The take-home materials are colourful and easy to use, with checklists and step-by-step photos, and can be used as quick reference after the course as well.
There are three levels of CPR training, each designed for a specific care provider.
3 year certification is granted after successful completion of a Canadian Red Cross CPR course.

PLEASE NOTE: Some people suffer ill effects as a result of being exposed to specific items such as nuts while others are adversely affected by some fragrances. The effects of these allergies can range anywhere from bothersome to life threatening or anywhere in between. While you are in our school, please refrain from using any perfumes, colognes or aftershave lotions. Their fragrances may be pleasant in the outdoors but not so much in the confined space of a classroom for someone who has asthma.
HCP level CPR is offered as an option at the end of an Emergency First Aid course or Standard First Aid course, but you must first notify the office at the time you register to confirm that the instructor is available to stay the extra time required. HCP recertification is also available as a group course. The following CPR A and CPR C dates are scheduled for 2017:
