A learner-centred advanced workplace first aid course leading to OFA 3 attendant certification.
The WorkSafeBC Occupational First Aid Level 3 course is an advanced first aid training course designed for Level 3 First Aid Attendants working at large worksites or high-risk workplaces that are more than 20 minutes from the hospital. This course will prepare you for the most common workplace injuries, including falls, cardiac emergencies, shock, bleeding, and more. You'll also learn how to make a transport decision, as well as packaging patients and patient care during transport.
While there is no prerequisite, this is an intensive course that covers a lot of material. Please be prepared for extra reading and practice outside of scheduled course hours.
