Standard First Aid and CPR Level C (Blended)

A hands-on, comprehensive Red Cross first aid course that covers common home and workplace emergencies through online and in-person delivery.

Our Canadian Red Cross Standard First Aid & CPR Level C Blended course is a fun and comprehensive first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course that combines self-paced, online instruction will a face-to-face, in-person skills session led by one of our first-class instructors. 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.

The online module of this course must be completed before you come in for the in-person portion, and will take up to 8 hours to complete. You can start and stop as many times as you need while you work through it, and take it up to 3 months ahead of your in-person course.

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.

FAQ

What is the difference between Standard First Aid and Emergency First Aid?

The quickest answer is an Emergency First Aid teaches everything you need to know to save a life from life threatening conditions that can cause death in 7 to 10 minutes. (Airway Breathing, Circulation or Deadly Bleeds) or how to keep a person alive until the ambulance arrives. Standard First Aid will teach that information plus teach how to deal with life  threatening conditions plus teach how to deal with other medical conditions such a heat and cold related injures, poisions, burns.
