Why Alert First Aid

Why Alert First Aid

We’ve been teaching fun and interactive first aid courses since 1998. We’re known for being enthusiastic, motivational, entertaining, knowledgeable and passionate about first aid. We love empowering everyone to help save lives and be a hero in their own communities.

Since we started, we’ve become a one-stop-shop for all first aid training, supply and safety needs and have expanded into offering a wide variety of first aid kits, supplies, disaster preparedness supplies, Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), and online safety training.

We are British Columbia’s largest Canadian Red Cross Training Partner as well as a WorkSafeBC First Aid Training Provider. We are also registered with Health Canada and hold a Medical Device Establishment License, which means we can design and sell our own custom first-aid kits.


  • We are known for being “ridiculously enthusiastic, very entertaining, highly motivational, supportive, knowledgeable, humorous, phenomenal, fun, informative, clear & passionate about first-aid.” We want you to have fun learning - we find the information sticks better that way.
  • We are British Columbia’s largest Canadian Red Cross training provider, and we offer more course dates for Standard First Aid, Emergency First Aid, Occupational First Aid and CPR than any other agency on Vancouver Island.
  • All of our instructors teach first aid full time. We believe that teaching is a craft, and we spend weeks training (much longer than a typical instructor training course) to make sure our instructors have the knowledge and can deliver an excellent course.
  • Great customer service! We have a team of friendly and knowledgeable office staff in Victoria to answer all your questions. We have certified first aid instructors in our office and can help you decide which course is right for you.
  • Do you have a group of people to train? We can run a course when you want, where you want. If you don’t have enough space, we can host in one of our classrooms in Victoria, Nanaimo, Duncan or Vancouver.
  • Prompt certificate replacement. Life happens - if you lose your certificate, we will replace it, fast. Often we can email your certificate the same day you call.
  • We have been in business since 1998 and we continue to grow. A large portion of our clients are repeat clientele. We must be doing something right.
  • Our prices are great! We offer a lot of added value to our first aid courses that you may not get elsewhere. In addition to teaching first aid courses, we are also a first-aid supply company and we encourage you to use real first-aid supplies while training with us. Course participants also receive steep discounts on our first aid kits and supplies.
