Childcare first aid and CPR courses are available only through certified St Mark James training providers. Participants that require childcare first aid training include employees in the childcare, child safety, child minding, daycare and kindergarten industry. Anybody that works with children in a community or group setting is recommended to have childcare first aid training. St Mark James Training offers two different levels of childcare first aid courses that mimic standard and emergency first aid. The two courses are emergency childcare first aid and standard childcare first aid. Topics in both courses are almost identical, however, candidates in emergency childcare first aid will have a condensed version of a standard childcare first aid course. Emergency childcare first aid is sometimes referred to as the most intensive basic first aid course available to Canadians. All of our training partners, located throughout Canada in major metropolitan areas, offer St Mark James childcare first aid course. No re-certification courses are available for either standard or emergency childcare first aid.
Childcare first aid CPR Training:
All candidates enrolled in childcare first aid, regardless of whether it is emergency or standard childcare first aid, will receive cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training. CPR level “B” is the only level of CPR training that is partnered with childcare first aid. No other level of CPR training can be substituted for CPR level “B”. CPR level “B” teaches candidates rescue and treatment techniques for patients that are either adults or children. Training includes treatment and recognition of patients that are victim of choking emergencies. Successful participants will be acknowledged on their certification award for completion of CPR level “B” when the complete the childcare first aid course.
Childcare first aid AED Training:
Participants enrolled in emergency or standard childcare first aid and CPR training will receive training in skills and knowledge in the use of automated external defibrillators (AED). AED significantly improve the chances of revival for victims of cardiac arrest. Good, effective, up-to-date CPR learned from a credible provider combined with quick and efficient use from an AED is the best treatment for anybody that has fallen victim to cardiac arrest. AED use can increase chances of survival by as much as 8 times which is why it has become a critical component of first aid and CPR training. AED’s are simple, convenient and easy to use and no rescuer should hesitate to use them if the need exists. All of our training partners teach participants knowledge and skill using AED trainers that mimic the actual AED’s used in the real world.
Childcare First Aid Prerequisites:
To be able to enrol in standard or emergency childcare first aid training participants must be at least 12 years of age. Participants are not assigned any pre-course assignments and will receive a St Mark James childcare first aid manual on arrival to the course. Training partners promote participants to wear comfortable clothes as childcare first aid courses requires candidates to move around and participate in a number of activities. If participants do not want to purchase a lunch they are more than welcome to bring their own food.
Childcare First Aid Course Content:
Participants enrolled in emergency or standard childcare first, CPR and AED training will learn a variety of different first aid and CPR topics and acquire a large skill set for treating patients in a variety of different emergencies. Some of the basic first aid skills and knowledge include:

Childcare First Aid Certification:
Participants must complete a written and exam and show competency in skills to successfully complete the course. Once participants complete a St Mark James childcare first aid course they will receive a emergency or standard childcare first aid certificate that is valid for 3 years. This certificate meets workplace standards for childcare / daycare workers. It can also meet government and legislative standards for first aid certification throughout Canada in various provinces. This certificate is valid throughout Canada, however, it is not a international certificate. Participants training with our training partners will receive a wallet sized licensing certificate and a wall mount certificate if requested. Upon completion of the course St Mark James trained childcare first aid instructor will send St Mark James the certification information and contact information about the successful candidate. If a standard or childcare first aid certificate is lost, the participants will have to contact St Mark James to be re-issued the award. Participants should not write on or deface the awards in any way as this causes them to be void. For more information about the certificates contact St Mark James.

Standard and emergency childcare first aid courses vary in length. Standard childcare first aid varies from 18 to 20 hours and emergency childcare first aid varies from 8 to 10 hours in length. The length of class is dependant on several factors. One factor is the experience and skill level of the candidates in the course. If the participants in the course are new to all the material and information they course can take longer. If the participants in the course are experienced and have a good understanding of the skills and knowledge requirements of the course the course can on the shorter side. However, ultimately the course length depends on St Mark James childcare first aid instructor.
Childcare First Aid Course Difficulty Level:
Emergency childcare first aid is one of the most intensive and comprehensive and participants have the most difficulty with this basic first aid course than with any other. This course requires candidates to absorb a lot of material, skills and knowledge to successfully complete the course. Almost the same amount of skills and knowledge is required in standard childcare first aid, however, participants receive an additional day to complete the course. If participants feel like the course is too overwhelming they should enrol in standard childcare first aid.
Childcare First Aid Manual:
Upon arrival to the training centre with one of our St Mark James providers, participants enrolled in childcare first aid will receive a St Mark James childcare first aid manual. This book is a learning aid to the course and will help the visual and auditory learners learn the material from the course. The manual is for the candidate to keep.
