Emergency first aid is an 8 hour course dealing with immediately life-threatening injuries. By the end of this course, you will be able to provide potentially life-saving care to acutely injured persons.
Emergency first aid is a good starting point in first aid, as well as a good level for most young adolescents to take. It is also required under WSIB legislature for any workplace with under 5 employees on shift at one time to have someone with emergency first aid or higher in control of the first aid station at all times.
Emergency first aid is usually run during a single 8 hour day, although it can be broken up into smaller portions.
