Quality CPR certification in Fort McMurray
St Mark James CPR and AED training focuses on cardiovascular emergencies, primarily cardiac arrest – how recognize it and react to it. First aid topics are also included in CPR classes, focusing on choking and bleeding emergencies. All CPR classes include AED training. AEDs are machines that give the heart needed shock through pads attached to the chest.
CPR certification levels
There are three levels in CPR certification: A, C, and HCP. The first two are for first time trainees and the last is for health care providers. All levels include CPR and AED training for adult victims, while C and HCP include pediatric CPR and AED. Basic first aid for choking and bleeding is also included.
To be able to pass a course, the student must have complete attendance, adequate skill demonstration, and at least 75 percent on the written exam.
Students who do not want to enrol in the full training course can opt for stand-alone classes for either CPR or first aid. CPR-only classes still include AED training.
Big groups of trainees and companies usually take private classes for CPR and AED training. However, Fort McMurray First Aid has private instructors – all certified by St Mark James – with hourly rates. You can book them for private training at home or for special events such as company conferences.
Certificates from St Mark James are awarded once the training program is completed. A certificate card is given to the student but wall mount certificates are also optional. Valid for three years, expiring certificates can be renewed through recertification classes.
Fort McMurray First Aid has recertification classes for level C and HCP. Both classes are four hours long.
Did You Know?
Acute Myocardial Infarction
In layman’s terms, an acute myocardial infarction is a heart attack. People usually describe a heart attack’s symptoms as sudden chest pain, or precipitated by persistent chest pain over several days or after strenuous activity. This happens when arteries leading to the heart and supply it with blood are blocked or leaking. The heart tissue then receives little to no blood and oxygen leading to tissue death. The tissue death causes the chest pain – known as an angina.
