TRAINING AND EDUCATION

HeartSafe offers a full complement of accredited courses that are approved for all workplaces and organizations in accordance with the WSIB Regulation 1101, Health Canada, Canada Labour Code and The 2016 Canadian Consensus Guidelines on First Aid & CPR.

If you are seeking more advanced training, are an experienced health care provider or have purchased a defibrillator for your organization you may benefit most from one of our First Responder or Experienced Provider courses.

All First Aid courses include a CPR/AED component. Courses range from four to sixteen hours in length and can be scheduled daytime, evening or weekend. Whatever type of organization, HeartSafe has the right first aid course for you.

CPR courses address life threatening emergencies such as cardiac arrest and choking. CPR training teaches you what to do until the ambulance arrives by restoring blood flow, using an AED and relieving choking.

First Responder courses are for those who arrive first in your organization with an AED, oxygen or who may have to manage a traumatic injury in a hazardous environment while waiting for the ambulance.

Respiratory Fit Testing is designed for those who are required to wear a tight fitting respirator, including N95 respirators to protect themselves from hazards associated with infectious agents, dusts, mists, fibres, fumes and bioaerosols.
