Vancouver first aid specializes in 1st aid and CPR HCP courses for lifeguards. The majority of instructors employed at Vancouver First Aid, have been, or continue to be in the Aquatics industry. The Lifesaving Society specializes in offering CPR and first aid courses for aquatics safety and lifeguards. Vancouver First Aid is proudly affiliated with the Lifesaving Society. Because of our affiliation with the Lifesaving Society we are able to offer Lifeguard specific CPR and first aid. In order to complete certification in becoming a lifeguard candidates must take first aid and CPR courses. Standard First Aid and CPR HCP are mandatory requirements prior to receiving lifeguard certification.
Instructors at Vancouver First Aid have had specific training in instructing future and current lifeguards. Our Standard First Aid and CPR HCP courses focus on water related emergencies and include pulse checks when doing CPR for an aquatic emergency requiring CPR.
Upon arrival to one of our recertification or certification courses inform the instructor that you are a lifeguard or are completing your requirements for life guarding. The instructor will focus on your needs and will alter the CPR course to focus on CPR level HCP at lifeguard standards.
We proudly offer the most competitively priced Standard First Aid courses and Standard First Aid recertifications in the Vancouver Lower Mainland. We understand the importance of being certified so we will never cancel a class. Come join us and register for a course. We are excited to help you accomplish your goal of becoming a lifeguard.
