OFA Level 2 or Equivalent

In BC, workplace first aid attendants must have a certificate that's recognized by WorkSafeBC. There are three levels of occupational first aid (OFA). The level of first aid services required for a workplace depends on teh number of workers, distance to medical aid, and industry hazard rating.

Occupational First Aid (OFA) Level 2 is an intermediate level first aid training and certification course designed for urban first aid attendants. This course is typically needed for larger low risk workplaces or higher risk workplaces within 20 minutes surface travel time to a hospital.

This course includes topics like facial injuries, partial blocked airways, electric shock, falls, internal bleeding, fractures, abdominal and chest injuries, hypoxic head injuries, facial burns, head trauma, multiple injuries, massive bleeding and chest pain.

Full Course Length: 35 Hours
Recertification: 14 Hours
