While Jo-anne and I have been teaching First Aid programs for years now we’ve recently made the decision to become a Red Cross Training Partner and offer courses under our own business (which is Ottawa Valley First Aid – the website you are currently on….). Sorting out all the details and ordering all the equipment is certainly a tedious task but also a very important one. We believe that training should be as close to ‘real life’ as possible which is why we made sure to order the best equipment to help reinforce that. Like our mannequins that not only look realistic but feel realistic so you’ll know if you are doing effective CPR or not.
We don’t want folks to come in and ‘go through the motions’. We don’t just tick the boxes and do what’s good enough for you to get your card. We actually want to prepare you for any situation you might encounter in the real world. While many workplaces or school programs require that card that shows you’ve taken a course, be sure that the place you train arms you with the knowledge the card represents. Having the card is great, but the card doesn’t help someone in a true emergency. Check out our upcoming courses and prepare yourself today!
