FIRST AID COURSES

 

FIRST AID AND CPR COURSES

 

Red Cross First Aid and CPR courses will teach you how to protect yourself and those close to you
First aid and CPR skills are applicable in your daily life, both at work and at home. If a medical crisis strikes, prepare yourself to act on, control and manage emergencies as you wait for professional responders to arrive. You can make a difference in helping someone in need.

If you require first aid training for employment outside of the aquatic field, contact the organization that is requiring the certification and ask them which qualifications you need to obtain. LIT cannot advise you about required certifications other than those required for aquatics and lifeguarding.

The Workplace Emergency First Aid course includes adult CPR, choking procedures as well as emergency scene management, dealing with shock, spinal injuries, minor wound management, major bleeding, internal bleeding, poisons and minor burns. Students will also be trained to use an Automated External Defibrillator.  The Red Cross Workplace Emergency First Aid program is recognized by WorkSafe BC and is equivalent to the OFA Level 1 program.

Candidates can take this course as early as 16 years of age, but will have a restricted ticked until 19 years of age.  This will require them to be under the supervision of another First Aid attendant.

Psychological First Aid

MORE INFO
The use of Psychological First Aid in supporting the psychosocial wellness of communities is a top priority for the Canadian Red Cross. Individuals suffering from high stress levels, burnout and suicidal thoughts (and actions) are at an all-time high in areas such as workplaces, schools, indigenous communities and among professional responders.

The Red Cross Psychosocial Wellness Program broadens the focus of training from a crisis-centred approach to one of resiliency-building, which is more effective at improving outcomes for individuals and others in their care.
