Students keep choosing Kelowna First Aid over other providers because of the affordable fees, flexible schedules, and St Mark James-certified instructors.

First aid and CPR programs

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is included in the full first aid training program. However, stand-alone classes for CPR are also available. There are three levels, lasting 4, 5, and 6 hours long respectively.
Students can also book private instructors for special events like company outings and conferences. Just send an e-mail or give me a call to inquire about instructor rates and schedules.

Certification and renewal
Certificate cards are given to students who are able to complete a program. Students can also request bigger or wall-mount certificates. These are only valid for three years during which they can be renewed in a recertification or renewal program. Certificates must be current and credible for them to be eligible for re-certification. The renewal / re-certification class is 8 hours long for first aid and included CPR level C.
Students can enroll via e-mail, telephone call, or in-person during business hours. There is also an online registration form on the website. Choose a program and enroll today!

Did You Know?
An irregular heartbeat or rhythm is called an arrhythmia. Arrhythmias are caused by existing cardiac problems and electrolyte imbalances. Arrhythmias can cause the victim to feel their heart beating too fast or too slow, or both. Victims can experience trouble breathing and changes in their level of consciousness.
One of the dangerous kinds of arrhythmia is ventricular fibrillation (VF). The heart beats very fast and erratically and causes the ventricles to quiver without pumping any blood to the rest of the body. This can cause heart failure if untreated.
