Very competitive rates
Lethbridge First Aid offers rock-bottom course rates compared to other providers. Rates are inclusive of everything – taxes, certification fees, and St Mark James training manuals. These are paid in full during enrolment so trainees don’t have to worry about additional expenses. Should the trainee drop out, a full refund will be given to him as long as he gives a 72-hour notice beforehand.
Quality training classes
First aid training classes and programs last 14-16 hours in total. Lessons such as emergency medical services (EMS), wound care, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and automated external defibrillation (AED) are given. AEDs are machines that are attached to the chest and supply the heart with needed shock. Students learn how to recognize and react to different emergency situations, especially injuries that compromise circulation and oxygenation.
Students can also book instructors for special training at home or events like company conferences. Instructors have different rates and schedules so just send an e-mail or a give a call to inquire about booking them, All instructors at Lethbridge First Aid are certified by St Mark James.
Certificate cards and wall-mount certificates
To pass a program, the following are required from the student:
- Complete attendance
- 75 percent on the written exam
- Good demonstration of skills
Certificate cards are awarded to all students who pass their enrolled class but wall-mount certificates may be requested. These certificates are only valid for three years and must be renewed through recertification programs. Standard first aid recertification, which is valid for 3 years, is 8 hours long, held twice a week, and is inclusive of CPR level C or HCP recertification.
Did You Know?
Bandages are used to immobilize an injury (such as an ankle or wrist), keep gauze in place to control bleeding, and to prevent swelling. First aid rescuers are taught to do basic bandaging (seen in the video below). Improper bandaging can cause poor circulation of blood and could even worsen the injury so learning how to do it properly is important. An important tip to remember is that the bandaged should be firm but not constricting, and that the overlap between each roll around the limb/area is a third of the width.
