About Nanaimo First Aid
Rates are paid in full during enrolment to prevent students from worrying about additional expenses during the training. Rates are inclusive of taxes, certificates, St Mark James registration fees, and training manuals. Students who drop out but give 72-hour notices beforehand are entitled to a full refund of the course fees.
First aid certification programs cover an array of different topics include emergency medical services (EMS), cardiopulmonary resuscitation, wound care, and managing injuries that compromise airway and circulation. Lectures and hands-on training are part of the first aid program course curriculum. First aid training programs last 14-16 hours long.
Students are required to have complete attendance, good skill demonstration, and at least a 75 percent on the written exam.
Stand-alone classes for CPR and AED are offered in three levels, lasting 4, 5, and 6 hours respectively. CPR Level “A” is for CPR and AED for adult victims. CPR Level “C” is for CPR and AED on adult and pediatric victims. CPR Level “HCP” is targeted at health-care professionals working in a hospital setting. CPR HCP focuses on skill training on the use of bag valve masks and rescue maneuvers.
Private instructors are offered by Nanaimo First Aid with hourly rates. They can be booked for private training at home or for special events like conferences. Just send an e-mail or give a call to inquire about rates when booking private instructors.
Certificate cards are awarded to students upon completion of the training program. Students can request wall-mount sized certificates if they want to. Certificates expire after three years so be sure to enrol in a recertification program before they do. Nanaimo First Aid does not renew expired certification.
Recertification for first aid training lasts 8 hours long in total, at least two times a week. CPR level C recertification is included in the first aid recertification program.

Stages of frostbite: Superficial frostbite
The second stage (after frostnip) is superficial frostbite. The damage to the tissue extends beyond the epidermis to the first half of the dermis. Instead of being numb, the skin and tissue start to feel a little warm – a warning sign of serious skin involvement. The skin turns from red to pale and greyish. After warming the skin, blisters often develop in one to two days.
