Nanaimo First Aid training programs cover a lot of ground, focusing on recognizing and reacting to different emergency situations. Lessons involve emergency medical services (EMS), cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillation (AED), and wound care for different kinds of injuries. This takes 14-16 hours total.

Stand-alone classes for CPR/AED are available in three levels.

There are three categories or levels in stand-alone CPR-only training. The three levels are 4, 5, and 6 hours long. All of these levels include training with automated external defibrillators (AEDs), with the last level (HCP) targeted towards health care providers.

Certificate cards are awarded to students who pass their enrolled program.

Wall-mount sized certificates are also available upon request. These certificates are only valid for three years and have to be renewed through recertification programs. Standard first aid and CPR / AED recertification lasts 8 hours and is available multiple times per week.

To pass a program or class, there are only three requirements:

  • Complete attendance
  • 75 percent on the written exam
  • Good skill return demonstration
