Our Approach

Health Wise is an occupational health and safety training company providing CPR and First Aid Training to individuals and groups across Eastern Ontario. We love teaching our students in a collaborative environment where they learn preventative measures for work and life.

The courses are offered in a bright, warm house in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. It's not the typical corporate feel you’d have when you’re thinking about taking a course. It's a great learning experience away from the office with good team dynamics. We can also come to your office location to host a workshop.

When she's not working at the hospital or teaching courses, Shelley enjoys spending time with her husband and children as well as chasing after her grandson.

Our Location

Based out of Perth, Ontario, we serve clients from across Eastern Ontario.

The courses are offered in a bright, warm house (no animals) just outside of Perth, which offers a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. We can accommodate up to 12 people at a time and all courses include coffee, tea and snacks, and we can get lunch catered in from an incredible Perth café.

We enjoy teaching our students in a collaborative environment. For us, it's fun when you get a group of people together while providing them with a skill set so they can carry on in their personal and professional lives.

We also go on-site and can host up to 24 people per course.
