Standard First-Aid and CPR Level C

Standard First-Aid and CPR Level C

A hands-on, comprehensive Red Cross first aid course that covers common home and workplace emergencies.

Our Canadian Red CrossStandard First Aid & CPR Level C course is a fun and comprehensive first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course led by one of our first class instructors, entirely in person over 2 days. This first aid course covers everything from life-threatening emergencies to minor bumps and scrapes and is recognized by WorkSafeBC as equivalent to the Occupational First Aid Level 1 course.

We strongly believe that first aid is a physical skill, and the majority of the course will be spent doing hands-on first-aid and participating in realistic first aid scenarios, developing confidence and muscle memory. At the end of this course, participants should feel sure of the their own skills and be ready to react and take charge in emergency situations.

We're doing our best to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Masks are mandatory for the duration of the course, and you can check out our resources section to see our full COVID-19 Safety Plan.
