Rates are very cheap, inclusive of taxes, certificates, and St Mark James training manuals. These are all paid in full during enrolment so students don’t have to worry about additional expenses while training. Students who drop out are still entitled to full refunds of the fees, provided that a 72-hour notice is given.
Emergency first aid courses are 14-16 hours long. First aid topics include:
- Emergency medical services (EMS) system
- Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
- Automated external defibrillation (AED)
- Basic wound care
- Addressing circulatory and oxygenation injuries
Stand-alone classes for CPR and AED are also available (levels A, C, and HCP). AEDs are machines that supply needed shock to restart the heart through pads attached to the chest.
Students can also avail of private instruction at Lethbridge First Aid. Instructors are all certified by St Mark James so you don’t have to worry about the quality of the training received. The instructors have hourly rates so you can book them for special training at home or for company events like conferences.
Certificate cards are awarded to students upon completion of a program. To pass, students are required to have complete attendance, at least 75 percent on the written exam, and good skill demonstration.
The certificates are only valid for three years and can be renewed through recertification programs held twice weekly. Standard first aid recertification is 8 hours long, inclusive of CPR level C recertification.
