About Winnipeg First Aid
First Aid and CPR Course Prices
Training course rates at Winnipeg First Aid are the lowest in the area. All rates are inclusive of taxes, certificates, and St Mark James registration fees. Trainees don’t need to worry about additional expenses because manuals and equipment used during training are all included in the initial enrolment fee. For trainees who choose to drop out of a training course, they are entitled to a full refund as long as a 72-hour notice is given.
CPR training courses are divided into three levels: “A”, “C”, and “HCP”. All levels include basic first aid and AED training. Trainees are taught only the latest information in basic first aid and CPR training. The American Heart Association’s Basic Life Support (BLS) guidelines are introduced during CPR and AED training. The BLS guidelines showcase the updated techniques and pathways used when rescuing a victim of cardiac arrest. The steps in providing chest compression have changed in the latest 2010 BLS update, with the new orders being Compression-Airway-Breathing. Immediate compression’s have been shown to increase the survival rate of victims, as opposed to starting with rescue breaths.
For trainees who do not want to undergo the complete training course, stand-alone classes for basic first aid or CPR and AED training are available at Winnipeg First Aid. Basic first aid classes cover a lot of ground in discussing various emergency situations such as falls and wounds and the appropriate management from resulting complications. Skills in managing different injuries are one of the major focuses in basic first aid such as bandaging and wound care.
Private classes are offered to companies or big groups who request a separate class and schedule for training. These classes are usually used for skill development and team building activities for companies. Trainees who are unable to enrol in a regular class schedule may choose to register for a private class.
Certification and Renewals
All trainees who successfully finish a training course are awarded a St Mark James certificate for first aid, CPR, and AED training, valid for three years throughout Canada. Renewals for expiring or near-expiry certificates are also offered by Winnipeg First Aid’s refresher courses, usually held twice a week.
The training facilities are well-equipped with high-end technology used in first aid and CPR training. The classrooms are spacious and well-lit, to optimize the trainees’ learning experience with Winnipeg First Aid. The training centers are also conveniently located near public transportation and restaurants.
