CPR and First Aid During Covid-19
1. Is it safe to perform CPR on a person who may have Covid-19? Should I perform CPR or recommend that others do so, if certified?
- According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, the situation is rapidly evolving, and your risk is variable depending on risk-factors. If someone’s heart stops and you are concerned that they may have had respiratory symptoms, it is at your discretion to perform or not to perform mouth-to-mouth breaths based on your personal preference. It’s still important to call E.M.S. and find an A.E.D. If you choose to perform breaths, you can use barrier devices to help protect yourself.
- CPR with breaths is recommended for people who have been trained in CPR, but as an alternative, hands-only CPR can be performed until help arrives if you are unsure about putting your mouth on a strangers’ mouth, or have concerns the person may have COVID-19. If you choose to perform hands-only CPR, first call EMS and then perform hands-only CPR until advanced help arrives. If you think the person may have COVID-19, please state your concerns to the emergency response telecommunicator so everyone who responds can be aware of the potential for COVID-19 transmission.

What payment options are available?
- You can pay when you register online with any major credit card or with PayPal.
- You can pay over the phone with any major credit card, or arrange to pay by email money transfer.
- For businesses, we are happy to arrange invoicing. Please call our office to get set up in our system.
I want to pay when I get to the course. Is that all right?
- We take payment in advance in order to reserve your spot in the class. For people who can only pay by cash, we cannot guarantee your spot in advance, and you may be asked to move to a different date if the course fills up.
3. I registered online for one date, but when I received my confirmation, it was for a different date. Why?
- When registering, did the date you selected on the registration form match a date from our calendar of available courses? If a date was selected by mistake, we will put you in the nearest available course and contact you to confirm.
- When registering, did the date you select on the calendar show as “full” or “closed”? When a course reaches its cap of participants, we can’t accept further registrations for that date. We will put you in the nearest available course and contact you to confirm.
- Sometimes this is the result of human error, so it is worth checking. Give our office a call at 403-452-7727.
4. I registered after normal business hours for a course the next day. The course on the calendar showed spots were available in the course. But when I arrived at the course, I was told it was full. Why?
- We are unable to guarantee registrations made outside normal business hours for a course that starts within 24 business hours. We do our best to update our calendar when a course fills, but if multiple registrations happen overnight, these are treated on a first-come, first-served basis. If this happens, we are happy to change your date for one that meets your needs with no fee.
5. When will I receive my certificate after the course?
- Temporary certificates, which are valid for 60 days, are available immediately after you successfully complete your course. Ask your instructor if you need a temporary certificate.
- Your full certificate will be emailed to you within 7 business days after your course. Please ensure we have your correct email address on file to ensure prompt delivery.
- If it has been more than 7 business days after your course, please contact our office at 403-452-7727 with your name, correct email address, and the date of your course.

- Yes, you are welcome to take the course. We can make accommodations, but you will still need to demonstrate all the skills.
13. I have arthritis, an injury or illness, or another physical issue that may prevent me from demonstrating the skills. Can I take the course?

14. What is the difference between CPR and BLS? Which one should I take?
- CPR, or cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, is a course that can be taken by anyone. It offers useful skills for responding in an emergency that are useful both to people with experience with first aid and for beginners. People who might need this course include:
- Fitness instructors (may also require Standard First Aid with CPR-C)
- Health care aides (often need Standard First Aid with CPR-C)
- Pharmacists (require Emergency First Aid with CPR-C)
- BLS or Basic Life Support is a course specifically for people who work in a medical field directly with patients. People who might need this course include:
- Dental hygienists
15. What is the difference between Standard First Aid and Standard Child Care First Aid? Which one should I take?
- Standard First Aid with CPR Level C is a general course that covers adults, children, and infants. It is useful for people working in many different industries.
- Standard Child Care First Aid with CPR Level B is a specific course focused on children and infants. People who work in a daycare, day home, or preschool often need this course. Check with the director of your program to be sure.
- Check with your employer which course you need.
16. What is a BC Equivalency or Out of Jurisdiction certificate? Do I need one?
- The B.C. Out of Jurisdiction certificate is necessary if you will be working in B.C. but you did your first aid training in Alberta. According to WorkSafe B.C., it is equivalent to a B.C. Level 1 First Aid certificate.
17. I didn’t get a B.C. Out of Jurisdiction certificate when I took my course, but now I need one. Can I get one after the fact?
- Yes. We will need to see proof of your current first aid certification. Then you must fill out a form showing that you are applying for the Out of Jurisdiction card. Finally, we will send you a scan of your Out of Jurisdiction card, as well as mailing a copy to you. The cost for this service is $25.00 plus GST (shipping and handling not included).
18. I registered for CPR, but I later found out that I need Emergency or Standard First Aid. Can I change my registration?

20. I took CPR several months ago, but now I need Emergency or Standard First Aid. Can I upgrade at this point?
