Fort McMurray, Alberta is home to the one of the largest and most popular training service providers in the area – Fort McMurray First Aid.

Fort McMurray First Aid
Fort McMurray First Aid CPR classes focus on cardiovascular emergencies, such as cardiac arrest, that require CPR and AED rescue. Other injuries such as heavy bleeding and choking emergencies are also covered in the lessons. Each level also corresponds to a particular age group and target audience.
CPR Training Programs
CPR training programs have three levels: “A”, “C”, and “HCP”. All levels correspond to a specific St Mark James training certificate, and are all inclusive of basic first aid and automated external defibrillation (AED) training. AEDs are machines that are attached to chest with pads and apply shock to the heart.
There are three CPR training levels: A, C, and HCP. These levels last four, five, and six hours respectively.
Stand-alone CPR classes are also available to trainees who do not want to enrol in the full level. CPR-only classes still include AED training, as per the latest guidelines from the American Heart Association.
If you want to book a private trainer for home training or a special event such as a company conference, Fort McMurray First Aid has several St Mark James certified instructors who have hourly rates. Just give a call or send an e-mail to inquire about them.
You can’t find another training service provider in Fort McMurray that offers better rates than Fort McMurray First Aid. Rates include taxes, certification fees, and training manuals. These are only paid once during enrolment. You don’t have to worry about additional expenses. If you decide to drop out, full refunds are given as long as 72-hour notice was done.
Certificate cards are awarded upon completion of a training program. Wall mount certificates are also available if the student wants to avail of them. The certificates are valid for three years and can be renewed, if current, through refresher / re-certification programs (for level C and HCP only) held twice a week, lasting four hours.
All instructors at Fort McMurray First Aid are St Mark James certified professionals. Students don’t have to worry about the quality of the training they will receive.
