Why Learn CPR?

Cardiac arrest – a heart malfunction that causes arrhythmia (an irregular heartbeat) and disrupts the blood flow to the lungs, brain, and other vital organs – is considered to be one of the leading causes of death. In the United States, more than 300,000 cardiac arrests occur outside of the hospital every single year.

Unfortunately, almost 90% of people die due to the event of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests. When someone experiences a cardiac arrest, no matter where it happens, getting CPR combined with an AED in a timely manner can significantly increase his/her odds of survival. That’s why you need to learn CPR.

What is First Aid?

First aid is the immediate care one gives to an ill or injured person until medical care can be obtained. The First Aider’s role includes:

  • recognizing the emergency
  • calling EMS/911
  • reacting according to your skills, knowledge, and comfort level

In a standard or emergency first aid class, students learn skills and knowledge to handle emergencies such as:

  • bleeding
  • heart attack and stroke
  • anaphylaxis
  • head, neck and spinal injuries
  • diabetic treatment

Having certification in first aid helps you prepare for these emergencies, and provide assistance and care until an advanced medical team arrives.

What are the different levels of CPR certification?

CPR Level A is CPR and choking techniques for adults. This course is recommended for those who need to know how to assist with respiratory or cardiac emergencies affecting a person older than eight years of age. The course is intended for layperson (general public) first aiders, workplace first aiders, Can-Fit-Pro certifications, and others.

CPR Level C is CPR and choking techniques for adults, children, and infants. 2-person CPR for adult and child is also taught at this level. This is recommended for those who need to know how to assist with respiratory or cardiac emergencies affecting persons in different age groups.

The course is intended for layperson rescuers, workplace safety teams, lifeguards, police, ECE and daycare providers, PSWs, security guards, and other groups.

CPR Level BLS is CPR and choking techniques for adult, child, and baby victims at a Health Care Provider or Basic Life Support level. This course provides training for the recognition of and initial intervention or treatment given by health care responders to a patient suffering from cardiac and respiratory arrest. Skills include advanced circulation check, rescue breathing, use of a bag valve mask (BVM), working in a high-performance team.

This course is intended for doctors, nurses, paramedics and allied Health Care Professionals.

CPR BLS can be combined with a standard or emergency first aid course.

When do I receive my CPR certification cards?

You will receive your Red Cross certificate directly from the Red Cross by email within 5-7 days of your course completion date. If you are completing a Lifesaving Society course, your certificate will be mailed out to you directly from the Lifesaving Society.

All of our first aid and CPR courses include certification from the Canadian Red Cross Society or The Lifesaving Society. The certificates meet Canadian Occupational Safety and Health regulations, Ontario’s Workplace Safety and Insurance Board requirements, and are recognized by employers, schools, and safety councils throughout Canada.

I took a first aid course years ago. Can I recertify?

Although you took a course already, if your card is not current (already expired) it is no longer valid and you will need to take the full course.

How long are First Aid and/or CPR certifications valid?

First aid and layperson CPR certificates are valid for three years, after which you’ll need to take a recertification course. CPR BLS is valid for one year. You should also note that some employers require you to retrain every year.

I can’t attend a class in person. Do you offer any courses online?
