Itinerary:
I took the course 2 years ago and found it very helpful and fun. There will be one evening session during the week plus a weekend at Lighthouse Park in order to practice more realistic outdoor scenarios. Course Description These intense one day certification courses provide basic first aid knowledge to care for adults, children and infants in the case of an emergency. There are some variations in the courses to suit different areas of specialization and occupations. At the conclusion of the course there is a multiple choice written exam. Upon successful completion, participants receive a national St. John Ambulance first aid certificate valid for 3 years.
