Emergency Childcare First Aid and CPR Level B

Emergency Childcare First Aid and CPR Level B

A one-day specialized first aid course for childcare workers to learn to respond to common childhood emergencies.

Our Canadian Red Cross Emergency Child Care First Aid & CPR Level B course is a fun, basic one-day course designed especially for those working as caregivers. The first aid skills taught are similar to our other basic courses, but our amazing instructors will teach them through realistic child care scenarios and spend extra time on common childhood injuries as well as how to prevent injuries from happening in the first place. This course meets BC's Child Care Licensing requirements.

First aid is a physical skill, and we strongly believe that you'll remember more of your course years down the road if you're enjoying yourself and paying attention. Our full-time instructors care about teaching first aid, and have fun doing it. We're sure you'll enjoy yourself too. At the end of this course, you'll feel confident in your skills and prepared to take on any injuries childhood can come up with.

To help slow the spread of COVID-19, masks are mandatory in all our first aid courses. You can read our full COVID-19 Safety Plan in our Resources section.
