Would you know what to do if a friend, family member, co-worker or stranger fell unconscious right in front of you? Would you be able to help? By taking St Mark James first aid and CPR training you will learn how to help in almost every major emergency either with first aid or cardiopulmonary resuscitation. After completing a course you will also receive a certificate that is valid for 3 year. All courses provide candidates the opportunity to learn basic CPR and first aid techniques on life-like mannequins.
Over ten million people die every year from heart disease. Almost a decade ago the world health organization declared that more people die from reasons of over eating than malnutrition every year. If a family friend, loved one, stranger or co-worker had a sudden attack from cardiovascular disease would you know what to do? The majority of people in the world would stand idle as the precious seconds and minutes went buy that could make the difference between life and death. By taking a first aid and / or CPR course you can become the difference between life and death. Candidates have the option of selecting from a variety of different courses from a variety of different Canadian Providers. This website will hopefully convince you to take a first aid and / or CPR course through a credible “hands-on” provider. Without “hands-on” training the practical skills that are necessary during cardiopulmonary resuscitation will not be learned or available in the time of need. Strong emphasis should be placed on “hands-on” training and training through a credible provider.
It is extremely important for participants to enrol into credible courses offered through credible providers. Participants that venture into courses outside of the major Canadian providers might be issued certificates that do not meet government and legislative standards. Certificates may not be credible in the workplace or meet school requirements. We strongly recommend that participants take first aid and / or CPR courses through credible
Canadian Providers such as:
- St Mark James Training
- The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada
- The Lifesaving Society of Canada
- St. Johns Ambulance
All of the provides mentioned above offer credible courses with hands on training and certification that meets government and legislative standards. Participants that enrol with these training providers will receive certification that meets the requirements from the workplace or for schooling.
