Nanaimo Standard First Aid and CPR Level C (Blended)

An interactive first aid & CPR course in Nanaimo, BC that covers everything from major emergencies to minor injuries.

Looking for a fun alternative to boring, PowerPoint-heavy first aid courses in Nanaimo, BC? We strongly believe you'll learn more (and remember more when the time comes) if you're enjoying your first aid training and are exposed to lots of realistic scenarios.

The Nanaimo Standard First Aid & CPR Level C Blended course will train you in CPR and first aid skills using a self-paced online learning module through the MyRedCross portal, and a skills-focussed in-person training session with one of Nanaimo's best first aid instructors. This course will cover anything that is immediately life-threatening (think CPR, heart attacks and deadly bleeding) as well as how to respond to the more minor (but still painful) injuries like sprained ankles and sunburns.
