Partnership Opportunities

Does your organization currently offer programming for youth and children?

Are you interested in adding high demand courses to your current curriculum, and increase revenue with very little investment?

If so, join with SOS First Aid, Southern Ontario’s first choice in child safety courses, by enrolling in our Partnership Program.

Qualified Program Partners can bring our innovative and engaging safety programs to children aged 7 – 12 in their community. Our programs are current, easy to understand, and use digital media to engage children in an effective manner.

This opportunity is ideal for organizations that offer children’s programs, first aid training, or aquatics to members of their local community. Our current partners include YMCAs, municipalities, and first aid training organizations.

Great Partnership Programs

We offer two great kids safety programs to our Qualified Partners:

  • Personal Safety for Kids 7 – 9 offers children the skills and confidence to make smart decisions and avoid situations that might put their safety at risk. We cover more than just basics, by including online and offline people safety, smart decision-making, strategies for getting help, dealing with bullies, handling emergencies, and fire and travel safety. 
  • Home Alone Safety for Kids is a comprehensive safety program that prepares children aged 9 – 12 to be on their own, at home or elsewhere, for short periods of time. In addition to the traditional content offered in a home alone course, we also include Internet safety, street smarts, online and offline people safety, first aid & injury prevention, fire safety, and a step-by-step home alone readiness plan for parents and children.

Customer Testimonials

  • Hi Velma,

    I really wanted to write you to thank you for all your patience coordinating everything with me. Secondly, I wanted to write you about Allison. We absolutely loved and appreciated her teaching. I have taken numerous first aid courses in the past and none of them have ever come close to what she delivered today. You have a truly excellent instructor that made the content funny, personal and extremely practical. I thanked her personally after class, but I wanted to make sure that you knew how pleased we were as well. Different individuals in the class kept coming up to me afterwards and telling me that they’ve never been taught first aid with such a phenomenal instructor. In the future, when we need any certification, I will most definitely be bringing you our business!

    Thank you!

    Sharon Johnston

  • “SOS First Aid provided Kronos with First Aid and CPR training to our Joint Health and Safety Committee and a few interested employees. Velma was engaging and made what could have been dry material, interesting and informative. Everyone who took the course scored very well on the final exam and I attribute that to Velma’s instruction and engaging delivery of the material. Velma is friendly and very current in the area of health and safety. I would definitely hire her again in future.”

    Jennifer Rea, Canadian Operations Manager, Kronos Inc.

  • “…..we appreciated SOS’ professionalism and training knowledge. Velma is very orgainzed/punctual/trustworth and is an interesting instructor that keeps you engaged in the topic.  Their classes are always fun to attend!”
