Because of high quality training from St Mark James certified instructors, Lethbridge First aid has remained the most popular provider in the area.
Lethbridge First Aid offers classes throughout the week at very flexible schedules.
First aid training programs are 14-16 hours long in total; classes held throughout the week, even evenings and weekends. Students are taught various first aid topics such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillation (AED), wound care, and emergency medical services. AEDs are machines that are attached to the chest through pads and supply needed shock to the heart.
CPR-only classes are also available to students who don’t want to enrol in the full course.
There are three levels (A,C, and HCP) that are 4, 5, and 6 hours long respectively. A and C are catered towards first time or repeat first aid trainees and HCP is catered towards health care providers who work in health care facilities or hospitals. All of the levels have CPR for adults included but only C and HCP include pediatric CPR.
Private instructors are available for private training.
Lethbridge First Aid also offers private training at home or for special events like employee workshops and conferences. They have different hourly rates so send an e-mail or give a call to inquire about booking private instructors.
St Mark James certificate cards are given to students upon completion of a course.
To pass, a student is required to have complete attendance, good demonstration of skills, and at least 75 percent on the written exam. Wall-mount sized certificates are also available and can be requested. The certificates are only valid for three years and can be renewed, if still current, through recertification programs.
St Mark James Standard first aid recertification is 8 hours long, held twice a week, and is inclusive of CPR level C recertification.
Enrolment is very hassle-free and quick and the course rates are very affordable.
