CPR training courses
CPR training courses in Nanaimo are focused on recognizing and reaction to cardiovascular emergencies such as cardiac arrest. Being able to perform CPR and automated external defibrillation (AED) is the main skill developed in the training course. Different levels are available for CPR, each corresponding to a particular age group and target audience. Other available CPR courses include private infant CPR courses in which the instructor comes to you and your group. Nanaimo First Aid also offers Heart and Stroke Foundation basic life support courses which are often referred to as basic life support or BLS. More information about these courses, including dates, times and locations is available on their website.
Stand-alone classes for CPR are available to trainees who do not want to enrol in the full training program. All CPR-only classes still include AED training. AEDs are machines that are attached to chest to supply shock to the heart.
Instructors and private training
All instructors at Nanaimo First Aid are certified by St Mark James. Private instructors are also available with hourly rates if you want to train at home or want to book a trainer for a company event.
Certificate cards are awarded to the students once they successfully complete the program. To pass the enrolled course, the student has to have complete attendance, adequate skill demonstration, and 75 percent in the written exam.
Wall mount certificates are also available to trainees if they want to avail of them. The certificates are renewable within three years through recertification programs.
