This course is based upon the training available from the Canadian Red Cross and other similar organizations. Despite all efforts to work safely, accidents will still occur. In these situations, your knowledge as a first responder could mean the difference between life and death. Part 11 of the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Code (OH&S) outlines the regulatory requirements for first aid training standards, locations, providers, records, and emergency transportation. This course has been designed to help you meet all regulatory and government requirements including the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Code.
This First Aid course is an awareness level review of important first aid principles and procedures. If a person needs First Aid training to meet the Part 11 requirements they need to take a St. John’s or Red Cross course. The learner taking this course will need to confirm with the company they are going to work for if this meets their requirements.
This is a two-hour online course.
