Fortunately, customers that register with Toronto First Aid can be assured that they will receive quality, low priced and WSIB approved certification when they register for standard first aid training. Other courses available include on-line safety training, H2S awareness, CPR only courses, food handling and re-certifications. Private classes are also available for groups of any size.

When do I pay the total fees?

Total fees are settled anytime before training starts, preferably during enrolment. This allows students to focus completely on the training instead of what expenses they might be incurring while training. You can’t find more competitive fees than Toronto First Aid.

Total fees include:

  • Tuition
  • Taxes
  • Certificates
  • Registration (with St Mark James)
  • Manuals

If a student drops out, he or she is entitled to a full refund of the fees. Just remember to inform the staff at least three days before you drop out.

Fever management

Fever management is one of the topics covered in the basic first aid class.

What kind of classes can I enrol in?

The full first aid program is handled by St Mark James instructors. It is a two-day program, lasting 14-16 hours long. This program is typically taken by people who are required by their employers to be certified in providing basic first aid or by people who just want to learn first aid skills for minor injuries and accidents at home. The core curriculum is focused on basic first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Other topics included are (but not limited to):

  • Emergency medical services system
  • Basic wound care
  • Automated external defibrillation
  • ABC injuries – airway, breathing, circulation

CPR-only programs are also available at Toronto First Aid. There are three categories of training: A, C, and HCP. The first two are for first time trainees. The former only teaches CPR for adult victims while the latter teaches both adult and pediatric CPR. HCP is for health care professionals. All categories teach students how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

When can I get my certification?

After completion of classes, a student still needs to meet the following requirements to receive a St Mark James certificate: 100% attendance, good demonstration of first aid skills, and 75% or better in the written exam. Once these requirements are met, a student receives a 3-year St Mark James certificate card.

Remember that Toronto First Aid does not renew expired certification so be sure to sign up for a recertification program before the card expires. Recertification is available at least twice a week, 6-8 hours for first aid (includes CPR C recertification) and 4 hours for CPR C or HCP.
