What is a Standard First Aid and CPR training course?
Standard first aid and CPR is both the most common and comprehensive level of training that the majority of participants register for. The course is two days long, and covers all aspects of first aid. The next higher level of training beyond this, is the EMR course, which is the basic level of training for ambulance attendants.
Our Standard First Aid and CPR Classroom Training Course is offered each week. Upon successful completion of the classroom theory and practical portions, as well as a test, you will receive a certification card, that is valid for three years.
