When it comes to getting First Aid + CPR training, you want to ensure you pick the course that's best for you. Here are some frequently asked questions we often receive. If your question isn't listed below, please reach out to us directly!

_______________________________________________

What is difference between Standard First Aid and Emergency First Aid?

The Emergency First Aid is a one-day course (8 hours), while Standard First Aid happens over two days.

Depending on the need of your employees under WSIB law, that will determine which course is better for you.

What's the difference between Heartsaver and BLS?

BLS is for healthcare providers. This course addresses equipment used in the hospital and it's more hospital focused. This course would also be good for anyone working in dental, physiotherapy and chiropractic offices as well as fitness centres.

Heartsaver is for the general population, daycare providers, CanFitPro re-certification and many other workplace environments.
