First-aid course

Try our fun, hands on realistic first-aid training in a no pressure learning environment

Standard First-Aid and CPR Level C

Did you know that nearly 60% of Canadians who have had to perform first aid did so to help a family member?

At Alert First-Aid, we not only believe it our job to teach you the information below but also to ensure you feel confident and empowered when dealing with injuries. We do this with our hands on learning approach, running first-aid scenarios that are relevant for you, and encouraging you to use real first-aid supplies and to ask questions and practice in a safe and fun environment. 

This hands-on interactive first-aid and CPR training course includes adult CPR, child CPR, infant CPR, two person CPR (Level C). You will learn how to clear an airway on a conscious choking person. Recognition and first aid for shock, spinal injuries, heart attack, angina, stroke, bleeding, broken bones, seizures, heat related illness, hypothermia, allergic reactions, poisons and burns will also be covered. You will learn and be certified on using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).  Other topics include how to use a first-aid kit and what goes into a first-aid kit, dealing with small wounds, recognition and prevention of infection, as well as how to use a CPR mask, how to protect yourself at the scene of an accident, what to do at an accident if you do not have gloves and a CPR mask, how to assess the history of an accident, and when to and how to call 911 or just go to the hospital. 

This first-aid course is recognized by the Adult and Child Licensing Care Board as well as WorkSafeBC as a Workplace Occupational First-Aid Level 1 equivalent course. Your Canadian Red Cross first-aid and CPR certification will be valid for 3 years. If you have taken this course in the last 3 years then you are eligible for a shorter recertification.

"I have always done St. John Ambulance first aid training. This course was taught differently but was more effective due to m ore hands on training. I will definitely return to Alert First Aid for my re-certification. Thank You!!"

"The instructor was entertaining and obviously experienced in the field of first aid. It is a lot of information in a short time, clearly presented, varied, physical and fun. Thank you for teaching today's course. I was a teacher so I know how difficult it is to keep people's attention for a long time. You did an excellent job."
