CPR Training Courses
CPR training courses are offered in three levels: “A”, “C”, and “HCP”. AEDs are machines able to detect heart rhythms and apply needed shock to to the heart in occurrence of cardiac arrest. Trainees are introduced to the American Heart Association Basic Life Support (BLS) Guidelines used during rescue of victims of cardiac arrest. The latest BLS guidelines are the focus of CPR and AED training, with every level inclusive of basic first aid training. The classes are focused on immediate action after a person collapses by pushing hard and fast on the chest. Compressions within 3-5 minutes have been shown to to increase the the survival rate of victims. The video below gives you an idea of what the CPR training courses at Vancouver First Aid will be like.
Trainees who do not wish to undergo the entire training course can enroll in stand-alone classes for basic first aid or CPR and AED training only. Basic first aid classes are the most popular training courses offered by Vancouver First Aid. First aid classes cover a variety of emergency situations from simple cuts and scrapes to sprains. Vancouver First Aid assures that its trainees will receive the best training in first aid and safety.
Private classes are offered to big groups or companies who request a separate class and schedule for training. Trainees who are unable to enrol in regular schedules may also choose private classes.
All training courses are overseen by St Mark James and taught by St Mark James certified trainors. Trainees who are able to complete a training course will be awarded a certifcate for first aid, CPR, and AED training, valid for three years. Vancouver First Aid also offered refresher courses held at least twice a week for renewal of expiring or near-expiry certificates.
The training centers are outfitted with high-end equipment used for first aid training. The classrooms are spacious and air-conditioned to ensure the trainees optimum level of education.
