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.
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.
The different levels of CPR training are detailed in the table below:
|CPR Course||Course Content:||Course Length||Course Cost|

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 with asthma.
Red Cross will manage your certificate and not the school. The nice feature of this is that should you lose your certificate you can print yours out again. The following CPR A and CPR C dates are scheduled for 2020:
