Occupational First Aid Level 2

An intermediate workplace first aid training course leading to OFA 2 attendant certification.

The WorkSafeBC Occupational First Aid Level 2 course is an intermediate level first aid course designed for urban first aid attendants - typically in larger low-risk workplaces or higher risk workplaces within 20 minutes surface travel to the hospital. WorkSafeBC has authorized Alert First-Aid to teach this workplace first aid program, and successful candidates will leave the course as certified Level 2 First Aid attendants, recognized by WorkSafeBC.

This is a hands-on, learner-centred course with experienced and friendly instrutors. There are no prerequisites, however you should be prepared for an intense course with additional reading outside of scheduled hours.

We are doing our best to reduce the spread of COVID-19, and masks that securely cover the nose and mouth will be required for the duration of the course. You can find our full COVID-19 Safety Plan in the resources section.
