First Aid and CPR

Basic Life Support (BLS)

When a cardiac or respiratory emergency occurs seconds can save lives. BLS – also known as Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) – can make all the difference.

  • Offered in conjunction with the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta
  • No prior training required

Childcare First Aid and CPR
— or —
Standard First Aid and CPR

First Aid & CPR training is mandatory for employees in the workplace; but unlike most other types of safety training, these skills and knowledge are also applicable to an individual’s daily life. This is why we teach people First Aid & CPR in easy-to-follow steps, empowering them to act on, prevent, and manage life’s emergencies.

Use of Automated External Defibrillators (AED)

Automated external defibrillators are becoming more common in the workplace as a standard part of any first aid programme. Defibrillators, in addition to BLS, are an added tool in the fight to save the lives of those in cardiac arrest.

  • Can be offered simultaneously with BLS training
  • No prior training required
