    FYI First aid and cpr only needs to be done every 2 years, I checked this year to be on the safe side.

    We have lady who comes from sports centre in one of bigger towns, who train all their staff. She does refresher in our home. Better price for group of 6 or more so all local provider come my house and we all do it here.

    It about $60.00 each.

    Not really suitable for new first aider. The St John's weekend is much better but it takes all weekend. The refreshed take about 4 hours but it certainly not as detailed. If I was new first aider, I think the course by CRP/First Aid trainer not good enough really but it okay as a reminder.

    All recognized training companies must follow the ILCOR standards for training. These standards are International guide lines which are agreed upon and the companies then set the programs which are taught by their instructors.
    Certification is approved by the parent organization such as The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada,
    St. Johnís Ambulance, Red Cross etc.
    Normally a Standard First Aid course (16 hours) with level C CPR certification is for 3 years with CPR being recertified every year but some of the organizations may have a CPR certification done every 3 years.
    An Emergency First Aid course is not recognized n Alberta as a WCB or in Quebec CSST course but might be in other provinces (check with your local training companies).
    There are some companies, usually owner operated which will teach their own courses and issue a certificate uder that company name. This type of certificate is not usually recognized by the WCB / CSST. Again, please check with your Provincial WCB / CSST.
    If you are in Alberta, please contact me for further in formation.
    Hope this helps.
