About Kelowna First Aid
Easy enrolment and cheap fees
Enrolment and sing up can easily be completed through e-mail, telephone call, or in person during business hours. The website also has an online registration form for sign up. Fees and rates can also be found on the website. Rates are inclusive of taxes, certification fees, and training manuals. These are paid in full during enrolment.
Students who drop out are entitled to full refunds of the fees as long as a 72-hour notice is given.
First aid certification and renewal
First aid certification is held throughout the week, weekends and evenings included. The program is 14-16 hours long. The program curriculum teaches students how to perform wound care, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and automated external defibrillation (AED). AEDs are machines that supply the heart with needed shock during cardiac arrest. Stand-alone CPR classes are available in three levels (A, C, and HCP), lasting 4, 5, and 6 hours long.
Certificate cards are awarded to students who are able to pass a class. To pass, a student is required to have complete attendance, at least 75 percent on the written exam, and good demonstration of skills. The certificates are only valid for three years. Recertification is held twice a week, varying in length with standard first aid taking approximately 8 hours.
Facilities and instructors
There are several facilities throughout the city, easily accessible by public and private transportation. Restaurants and free parking is available within walking distance. Instructors are all certified by St Mark James.
