COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Not for individual registration at this time – groups only. Please contact us to book your group today.

The first of its kind in Alberta, this blended online learning Standard First Aid course was approved by the Government of Alberta in February 2012. The course covers the information needed to respond to a medical emergency either on the job or at home. Full certification is achieved once the learner has successfully completed both the online and in-class portions of the training.

STEP 1: ONLINE ASSESSMENT (APPROX 4.5 – 6 HRS)

Testing conducted throughout this Alberta Standard First Aid online course is designed to reinforce the information presented. A mark of 80% must be achieved in order to receive a Proof of Completion certificate which will be available to download and print. Supplemental materials necessary to complete this course can be accessed online.

This online certificate must be presented to the in-class training instructor in order to participate.

STEP 2: IN-CLASS ASSESSMENT (APPROX 6 – 8 HRS)

Students attend the in-class portion of the Standard First Aid training. The instructor covers practical application of the course content while reviewing key points from the online theory to reinforce learning. During this portion, students will be asked to complete two multi-injury scenarios. Each student writes the government approved Standard First Aid test.

If both the in-class practical skills assessment and the written test are completed successfully, the student will receive full first aid certification.

** The in-class training portion of the course must be completed within 90 days of starting the online training.
