Standard first aid is a comprehensive 16 hour first aid course which includes emergency care such as CPR as well as non-emergency care such as care for a broken bone. By taking this course, you would be prepared to deal with most medical situations until further help arrives.
Standard first aid is the standard level of training for anyone who may have to deal with emergency situations. This would include fire fighters, police officers, nurses, sports trainers, child care workers, teachers, and many other professions. It is also required under WSIB legislature that any workplace with more than 5 workers on shift at one time must always have somebody with standard first aid on shift and in charge of the first aid station.
Standard first aid is usually run over a weekend with two 8 hour days, although it can be broken down in to almost any arrangement equaling 16 hours. Please let us know in advance if you would like a special arrangement such as evening classes.
As always, Right Response Training is proud to offer discounts for non-profit groups as well as large groups. Please Contact Us for more information.
