Course Summary

This 16-hour program will provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to a medical emergency in the workplace. A prompt response can save lives, reduce the amount of time lost due to workplace injuries, and lower the resulting costs. Trained employees have also been shown to be more safety-conscious in general, therefore reducing the number of incidents. This program meets the criteria outlined in Regulation 1101 for a valid St. Johns First Aid Certificate or its equivalent.
