First aid training
Lethbridge First Aid has standard first aid training programs that run for 14-16 hours over a span of two days. Schedules for first aid programs are available throughout the week, even during evenings and weekends. First aid programs for standard, emergency, marine, and babysitting all include cardiopulmonary resuscitation (AED) and automated external defibrillation (AED).
Stand-alone CPR/AED classes
CPR-only classes are also available. Levels A and C are targeted for first time trainees. Level A is about adult victims and situations/injuries that require CPR/AED and first aid. Level C is similar, but includes pediatric victims and the difference in pediatric CPR/AED and first aid. Level HCP is targeted at health care providers.
St Mark James certification
Wallet-sized certificate cards are available once a student passes his or her enrolled program. Bigger, wall-mount certificates can be requested. All certificates expire after three years so students need to take a recertification program before they do.
Standard first aid recertification programs are available throughout the week as well. They last 8 hours, inclusive of CPR C recertification.
The total training fees paid for a first aid program include tuition, taxes, certificates, registration, and manuals. Unlike other providers in Lethbridge, Lethbridge First Aid allows students to pay the complete fees during enrolment or anytime before training starts (if sign up was done on-line). Students are hard-pressed to find a cheaper provider in the city.
Variety of extra classes
There are CPR-only programs offered to students by this provider as well. CPR-only programs have three training levels: A, C, and HCP. All three teach students CPR for adult victims while C and HCP teach pediatric and adult CPR. HCP is targeted mainly towards those working in the health care field.
