A look into first aid training
First aid training is usually taken by workers and students who are required to have certification for standard first aid training (by schools and workplaces). The program’s curriculum focuses on first aid skills like cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), wound care, and medication administration. The focus is to be prepared for a variety of major and minor emergency situations.
Windsor First Aid also offers special CPR-only classes. There are three kinds of CPR classes: A, C, and HCP. The first two are targeted towards first time trainees or those who don’t work in a health care setting. HCP is targeted mainly towards health care providers. All three teach students adult CPR while C and HCP teach both adult and pediatric CPR. Students are trained in the use of automated external defibrillators (used during CPR) in all programs.
Certificates and recertification
Once a student has met all requirements for passing a program, they are awarded a St Mark James certificate card. The requirements for passing are 100% attendance, acceptable demonstration of skills, and 75% or better in the written exam.Once all these are met, a student receives the certificate, valid for three years.
Always take recertification programs (shorter than regular programs) before your certificate expires. Windsor First Aid does not renew expired certification so to avoid that, revalidate yours before the expiration date. Recertification programs are held at least twice a week, 6-8 hours for first aid recertification
