It’s Not Just About First Aid

When you think about first aid training, you probably think about the basics:

  • Wound care
  • Heart attack
  • Choking
  • Resuscitation

But do you think about the training program and the qualifications required by law?

Not all courses are created equal.  Life’s Emergency Training is one of only 50 training agencies approved by WSIB – Workplace Safety & Insurance Board.  The Ministry of Labour sets out specific training requirements when it comes to first aid, and Life’s Emergency Training meets and exceeds those requirements.


When you think about first aid training, do you know where CPR fits in?

First aid training should always include CPR if a certificate of completion is being provided.  But you can also just be training on CPR and receive a certificate for completing the training.  A manual is provided in both instances.


So what else makes Life’s Emergency Training different?

Our culture!  Our goal is to make first aid less intimidating. No one should be nervous or afraid – it’s a new learning opportunity for everyone.  We like to be practical and teach people to look at scenarios in a proactive way so that when a situation occurs, the mindset is able to stay calm and confident to respond.  The course is serious but it’s important that we have fun and create a culture of comfort and easy learning.


I’m passionate about first aid training.  Why?  Because this stuff does matter!
