Frequently Asked Questions

Stand First Aid & CPR training is more extensive and is designed for those who require first aid training for work. It involves double the amount of in-class training and equips participants with a more advanced understanding and more practical skills for first aid situations.

Emergency CPR & First Aid training programs involve only the basic skills of learning how to respond to cardiovascular emergencies. It is a shorter course that equips participants with general knowledge of first aid principles.

First aid refers to the immediate emergency care given to an injured or ill person until they can receive professional medical assistance. The purpose of first aid is to minimize the injury and in extreme cases, to keep someone alive. The role of the first aider is to recognize the emergency at hand, to call 911 immediately, and to provide care according to your skills, comfort level, and knowledge until the medics arrive.

Standard first aid skills and knowledge should include how to handle the following situations:
- Heart Attacks & Strokes
- Bleeding
- Anaphylaxis
- Diabetic Treatment

CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is a lifesaving technique that’s used in emergency situations in which someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped.

The term cardio refers to the heart while pulmonary refers to the lung. CPR is a combination of resuscitating an individual with assisted breathing and chest compressions. CPR helps provide the brain with oxygen during a cardiac arrest and will increase the likelihood of survival until professional medical assistance arrives.

All workplaces in Ontario that are covered by the Workplace Safety & Assurance Act (WSIA) and the Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB) require employers to provide first aid training to their employees. Even if your place of work doesn’t require you to have first aid training, it’s recommended that everyone has a basic understanding of first aid principles and should do a training program to learn to apply the necessary skills in emergencies.
First Aid & CPR certificates are valid for three years. Once three years have gone by, you’ll need to take a recertification course. Many workplaces require annual recertification and training to be completed to stay up to date with the latest information and practices.
Most Emergency First Aid & CPR training programs take anywhere from 8 to 16 hours to complete. The length of online compared to in-class learning will vary from one course provider to the next. Keep in mind that the Standard First Aid & CPR course is roughly double the length of the Emergency First Aid course. Contact us to learn about our first aid programs!
