Childcare first aid classes are courses provided exclusively by St Mark James. This is a comprehensive and intensive course that can be completed in either 8 hours or 16 hours. St Mark James offers two types of childcare first aid courses:
Emergency childcare first aid – This is a 8 hour course that involves a lot of curriculum in a short period of time. Candidates will receive certification in automated external defibrillators (AED’s) and CPR level “B”. Candidates can not opt for any other level of CPR training as CPR level “B” is the only option.
Standard childcare first aid – This course is less intensive than the emergency childcare first aid course. This is a 18 hour course with almost the same content as the emergency childcare first aid class. CPR level “B” comes as the only option for this course.
Childcare first aid classes can be taken with almost any workplace approved training provider in Canada. This course is offered in every major metropolitan region. For more information and course registration visit this workplace approved website.
Upon completion of this course candidates will receive a childcare first aid and CPR level “B” certificate. This certificate meets government regulations and is valid for 3 years. Candidates may need to renew certification at a earlier date based on employer or school policy. Certification award is either in a wallet card or wall mount format. Candidates can receive both formats but it may come at an extra cost.
Childcare first aid classes range in price depending on the level of childcare first aid, location and taxes. Prices range from a low of 75 dollars to as high as 160 dollars in some regions. Candidates will receive a childcare first aid manual that is provided exclusively by St Mark James.
