FAQs

Can I get first aid certified online?

If you need first aid certification, you can only do PART of the course online. We offer Emergency First Aid, Standard First Aid, Marine Basic First Aid, and standalone CPR C courses in a ‘blended’ format where you are able to complete the ‘knowledge lessons’ online. This cuts the amount of time in the classroom for these courses fully in half, but it isn’t permitted to issue first aid certification unless half of your course time is spent in the classroom where an instructor can guide you through the practical skills and evaluate that you can perform them well enough to be certified.

Do online first aid courses count?

If you require first aid certification for work or for a role in the community, you can only do PART of the course online.

Great class! The interactive components were varied, the teacher was entertaining and it was nice to get feedback.

Angela Behn Occupational First Aid Level 1, Nanaimo, BC More Testimonials

"JIll was very good. Very clear and practical. I forgot that having further first-aid (being a lifeguard) isn't always applicable in other courses. Alert is convenient. Courses are available often."

Krista Standard First-Aid Recertification, Victoria, B.C. More Testimonials

It was a great class. Never a dull moment with Gary. Made it fun as well with humor and personal stories. Always positive. 

Natasha Nelson Emergency Childcare First Aid, Victoria, BC More Testimonials

Hi, I took a cpr-c course from instructor Ashley this September.  I am an RN and so have had to take very many first aid courses in the past.  I would like to say that I was shuffled on to your organization because the original course i was going to take was cancelled and they gave me your company name.  When I called I had a good conversation with someone who seemed very on top of things and knew how to give me directions and this person was very practical and seemed to know exactly the kind of cpr-c course I would need.  I had never had this happen before... the the person on the other end of the phone actually sounded excited about first aid and that was a first for me.  The course was easy to find and was exactly where I was told it would be with big signs out front to direct me and that was awesome.  I was not given a hard time for not doing a lot of prereading (I hardly ever do the prereading as I have reading comprehension issues and am more a kinesthetic learner).  We had this instructor named Ashley and as I work in mental health I quietly decided that she must have some low grade adhd diagnosis... I guess you would think that this would be a bad thing... but it was an awesome quality.  She made the course really a lot of fun and it was the very first cpr course where I have not fallen asleep... seriously!  I totally remember how to do cpr now and that is the first time I have taken a course and actually remembered stuff you know.  So thank you.  I will only take cpr courses from your outfit from now on.  I really think you guys got it going on.
