First Aid Programs
First aid training programs are focused on different emergency first aid skills and introducing the student to the emergency medical services (EMS) system. Students learn how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillation (AED), wound care, and addressing injuries such as heavy bleeding and burns. Standard first aid programs, the most popular course available, takes approximately 16 hours to complete.
Students are required to have complete attendance, at least 75 percent on the written exam, and good skill return demonstration to pass the program.
CPR/AED-only classes are also available, with three levels lasting 4, 5, and 6 hours respectively.
Private instructors are also available at Nanaimo First Aid, with hourly rates and special schedules. Just give a call or send an e-mail to inquire about booking them. Instructors can be booked for private training, training at home, or for special events like conferences.
Certificate cards are awarded upon passing the program. Certificate cards are awarded to all students but wall-mount sized certificates are optional and can be requested. The certificates are valid for three years, renewable through recertification programs. Standard first aid recertification classes are 8 hours long, twice a week, and include CPR level C recertification.
