Is it time to refresh your first aid and CPR skills? We’re proud to offer some of the most affordable and comprehensive courses for first aid recertification in Calgary. When compared to other courses in the area, we provide the best value along with easy-to-follow teaching methods that meet the needs of students with all learning styles. We can help you recertify your first aid and CPR training with easy-to-understand materials and study books that you’re free to mark in and keep. Allow us to keep your training up to date so that you’re always confident in emergency situations.
Take advantage of these refresher courses, they are less money and take less time than the originals. The recertification courses do not skip or gloss over any section or topics, but give you a chance to showcase what you remember from your last class and focus on things that have changed or may have been forgotten. You must bring your current non-expired certificate to these classes.
Unlike other companies when you sign up for a Recertification course with us on either Monday or every Second Saturday you will be assured that this is only for Refreshers and not for people taking the course for the first time. This ensures that the courses are finished quicker and that more time can be available to specific questions you may ask pertaining to your individual circumstances.
First Aid and CPR guidelines are updated internationally every 5 years. The most recent was in November of 2015. A small example of some of the changes that were made is that CPR is now performed slightly faster. Tourniquets have been re-introduced emphasizing when it is appropriate to use them and when it is not.

We Teach Lifesaving Society courses which are all approved by Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S). Approved companies and list of courses can all be found on the OH&S website. There is still no written tests for any of the first aid recertification in Calgary, we only ask for participation and effort in the scenarios we will ask you to complete. The First Aid training tests will be the same as the original course 30 questions for Emergency First aid CPR “C” and AED and 50 questions for Standard First Aid CPR “C” and AED.
The Requirements of completion for each course will be clearly explained at the beginning of each class. Candidates that are unable to complete the requirements for recertification must take the full original course again.
