Nanaimo Emergency First Aid and CPR Level C (Blended)

A fun basic first aid & CPR course in Nanaimo, BC to learn how to treat common immediately life-threatening emergencies.

Take your Emergency First Aid course with us in Nanaimo, BC - our full-time instructors are friendly, knowledgeable and love what they do. And you can tell - the time will fly by!

Our Nanaimo Emergency First Aid & CPR Level C Blended course is a hands-on basic first aid course that teaches CPR & lifesaving first aid skills through a combination of online, self-paced instruction and in-class, hands-on skills practice with one of Nanaimo's best first aid instructors. This course focuses on the life-threatening emergencies (like heart attacks, deadly bleeding, choking and using an AED). If you're looking to learn how to respond to the smaller (but still sometimes painful!) injuries like broken bones or sprained ankles, or would like to learn more about medical conditions (like diabetic emergencies), take our Standard First Aid course instead! Same approach, but more comprehensive. WorkSafeBC recognizes both as equivalent to their Occupational First Aid Level 1 course.

We're taking COVID-19 very seriously, and have made masks mandatory in all our courses. You can read more about our Nanaimo COVID-19 Safety Plan in our resources section.
