More on training
First aid training programs are focused on different first aid skills needed to address different injuries and emergency situations. Students are taught how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillation (AED), and wound care. Injuries such as neck, spine, and joint injuries are all part of the program curriculum. The entire standard first aid course lasts 14-16 hours, taken throughout the week, including evenings and weekends. Stand-alone classes for CPR (three levels: A, C, and HCP) are also available.
Private classes and instructors
Big groups of trainees and students with scheduling problems can enrol in private classes in any of the facilities. Instructors are also available for training at home or for events like workshops and conferences. Inquire about their rates and schedules through e-mail or telephone call.

The certificates expire after three years. They can be renewed, while still current, through recertification programs held twice a week, 8 hours long. First aid recertification is inclusive of CPR level C recertification.
