CPR & First Aid Training Description

Certification Program | Short-Term Training | Offered in Calgary

All too often it’s an accident, illness, or disaster that demonstrates how important it is to be prepared for a medical emergency. Emergencies strike with little warning, you’re either prepared or you’re not. Individual skills and company emergency preparedness protocols should be reappraised regularly.

ALL of our First Aid, CPR, and AED courses meet the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and Work Safe Alberta. This guarantees that personnel working in construction, manufacturing, massage therapy, the oil and gas industry, and as school teachers, social workers, childcare workers, office workers, fire fighters, police officers, emergency medical responders, and hospitality employees are trained in delivering high quality First Aid and CPR.

Does your company comply with current CPR, First Aid, and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) training workplace regulatory standards? Are your employees up-to-date with the latest recommendations for CPR, First Aid, and AED? Let ABM College help you to make the answer to these questions “Yes”!
