Training for Social Services

People need social service workers for many different reasons, but one common trait across the personal support worker industry is the high level of trust that develops between the support professional and their clients.

Building this trust takes time and effort, and can be enhanced if your client knows that you have the skills to help them in a health emergency.

This is why SOS First Aid & Safety Training offers first aid & CPR courses for social service workers, as well as recertification courses for those in social service.

Whether you’re a PSW seeking First Aid Certification, or you work in childcare and want to learn first aid, or a social worker who wants that extra skill set, we can help. The instructors at SOS First Aid & Safety Training provide Red Cross approved first aid & CPR training for professionals across the Greater Toronto Area, including social service workers.

As a Canadian Red Cross Training Partner and Affiliate of the Lifesaving Society, our instructors are fully qualified to teach First Aid & CPR. Our First Aid & CPR programs are WSIB approved and meet standards established by Federal Occupational Health and Safety Act.

Designed for groups of 5 or more, our on site first aid training courses bring our WSIB approved programs to your place of business. Taught by engaging, Red Cross trained professionals, your staff will be fully certified to handle emergency situations that require first aid or CPR.

Please note that for both courses, prices are subject to change based on the number of participants. All certifications are provided by the Canadian Red Cross and are valid for 3 years.

Our programs are taught in easy-to-follow steps, allowing graduates to act on, prevent, and manage life’s emergencies wherever they may occur. Instruction is hands-on and interactive and is supported by a variety of training materials, including CPR mannequins, AED trainers, bandages and splinting materials, barrier devices, auto-injector trainers, inhalers, and more.

We provide flexible scheduling options, so that courses can be run on weekdays, evenings, or weekends. Please allow 2 – 3 weeks prior notice for us to accommodate your dates.

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.”
