Studying first aid
The Grande Prairie First Aid program is 14-16 hours long, with classes held throughout the week, including evenings and weekends. The program teaches students a variety of first aid skills such as wound care, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and automated external defibrillation (AED). Students learn how to manage head, neck, spine, and joint injuries, as well as different emergency situations.
To pass a class, a student is required to have good demonstration of skills, at least 75 percent on the written exam, and complete attendance.
All students who pass are awarded a certificate card and a wall-mount sized certificate. The certificates are only valid for three years and can be renewed, if still current, through recertification classes. The length of the course varies depending on the level / type. Standard first aid recertification is 8 hours long in total, held twice a week, and includes CPR level C or HCP recertification
