First Aid Programs and Courses

Canadian Red Cross Injury Prevention has both individual courses and programs.

All CPR/AED and First Aid components of Canadian Red Cross courses are taught in accordance with ILCOR and the National Training Agencies. Courses on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillation provide the skills needed to recognize and respond to cardiovascular emergencies and choking for adults, children, and babies depending on the level of CPR chosen. All include using an automated external defibrillator (AED). Courses are suitable for those looking for training for the workplace or for their own general interest.

Canadian Red Cross Core First Aid & CPR courses offer lifesaving first aid skills. All courses cover cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and rescue breathing techniques for adults, children, and babies (according to the level of CPR included). Courses offer skills for individuals needing training for the workplace or for those interested in having first aid skills so they can respond to emergencies at home.
