A comprehensive two-day course designed for those providing first aid in a marine environment.
The Canadian Red Cross Marine Basic First Aid course is a comprehensive two-day first aid training program designed to meet the needs of those expected to provide first aid in a marine environment. The first aid course skills are very similar to the Standard First Aid course - the main difference is that the scenarios used are taken from the marine/fishing industry. This course meets the requirements of Transport Canada outlined in Transport Publication (TP) 13008 E.
There is now a blended (half online, half in person) Marine Basic First Aid course - click here to switch to the blended course.
At Alert First-Aid, we not only believe it our job to teach you the required information, but to ensure you feel confident and empowered when treating injuries. We do this with our hands-on learning approach, running realistic first aid scenarios that are relevant for you, using real first aid supplies in-class, and encouraging you to ask questions and practice in a safe and fun environment. All of our instructors go through a comprehensive training course and mentorship program before they are ready to teach a first aid course with Alert First-Aid.

Your fun energy made the course enjoyable. Thanks for keeping it up, it was a long day of classes for us so we appreciated it!
"I really enjoyed the pace of this course, not having to write a written exam was a bonus and I got more out of the 50 questions by using the book to check for information than having to worry about a test! Thank you!"
Great pace, thorough, kept energy up and positive. Really well done! Thanks.
"Good training, instructor was engaging. Exactly what I expected. Enjoyed my course."
