Participants that complete workplace approved first aid and CPR certification programs will immediately receive OH&S approved certificates. These awards meet Alberta workplace standards. Certificates are provided immediately upon successful completion of the course. Wallet sized certificates are provided, however, participants may also opt to receive wall-mount awards. These certificates are valid throughout Canada for 3 years and many get be renewed by attending condensed re-certification courses.
Certification Programs for CPR Training Courses in Calgary
Three popular basic first aid courses are available for participants. The most popular course is standard first aid. This is a two day course that teaches a wide range of topics ranging from heat stroke to broken bones. CPR and AED training is included in each course. Standard childcare first aid is a course designed for individuals that work in the childcare / daycare industry. It is approved by OH&S and is very similar to standard first aid but offers additional content for individuals in the childcare industry. Emergency first aid is the most basic course that requires one day to complete. Participants are able to partner the courses with CPR level “A”, “C” or “HCP” for either standard, emergency or childcare first aid.
Stand-Alone CPR Classes
Trainees can enrol in stand-alone classes for CPR if they do not want to undergo the entire training course. These courses require approximately 5 hours to complete and also include automated external defibrillator (AED) training. Typical participants are normally post-secondary students. Re-certifications are also available for CPR level “C” and “HCP”. CPR standards are provided by the American Heart Association and the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). Certificates are valid for 3 years.
Private First Aid and CPR Classes
Private classes are also available to big groups or companies, or even trainees with scheduling problems and cannot enrol in any of the regular class schedules.

Did You Know?
If you are looking for stand-alone CPR level “B” courses, you won’t find any offered by any of the major first aid and CPR providers in Canada. CPR level “B” is so similar to CPR level “A” that the programs are almost identical. This lead to the removal of level “B” from the program. However, to add to the confusion St Mark James maintained CPR level “B” with the emergency and standard childcare first aid programs. Only candidates that register for St Mark James emergency and standard childcare first aid can receive CPR level “B” certification.
