Fort McMurray First Aid
Fort McMurray First Aid offers prospective students the cheapest rates in the area. Other providers just can’t compete. Rates are paid in full during enrolment to allow students to focus completely on their education. The fees are inclusive of taxes, certificates, and training manuals.
Should a student be unable to complete his or her enrolled course, he or she is entitled to a full refund of the fees, provided a 72-hour notice is given beforehand.
Programs for first aid, CPR, and AED
First aid training classes last 14-16 hours total, requiring students to have complete attendance, at least 75 percent on the written exam, and adequate demonstration of skills to pass. First aid classes cover the emergency medical services (EMS) system, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillation (AED), and wound care. Students are able to react to different emergency situations requiring first aid.
CPR and AED training has three categories: A, C, and HCP. Students have to choose from any of the three. All categories include adult CPR and AED training, while C and HCP include pediatric CPR and AED training. Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are machines that can supply the heart with needed electrical shock through pads on the chest.
St Mark James certificate cards are awarded to students upon passing a class. Wall-mount certificates are optional and can be requested. These are only valid for three years and can be renewed through recertification programs.
Standard first aid recertification, the most popular re-cert course, lasts 8 hours and is held twice a week, inclusive of CPR level C recertification.
Students can book instructors for training at home or at work, or for special events like company conferences. All instructors are certified by St Mark James so you’re assured that training is standardized in and out of Fort McMurray’s facilities.
Did You Know?
Muscles are held together and attached to the bone with tissues called tendons. They can stretch to allow movement of bones and muscles. However, when the tendons are overstretched, they can get damaged. This is called a sprain. Sprains are usually healed in one to two weeks but if the tendon tears, recovery time can be as long as one to two months. Resting an sprained limb is quite important in the healing process.
