About Hamilton First Aid

First aid, CPR, and AED training

Lecture and training room

Lecture and training room

A standard first aid training program runs for 14-16 hours , with the curriculum focusing on CPR, injury management and emergency recognition and management. Students are taught how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), manage bleeding and burn injuries, and how to triage victims. These are only some of the topics covered by a first aid training program.

CPR and AED training is also available in a stand-alone CPR class. Automated external defibrillators are used to apply shock to the heart in case of cardiac arrest. These lessons in CPR are taught using the 2010 Basic Life Support Guidelines from the American Heart Association. There are three levels: A, C, and HCP. The first two are for first time trainees while HCP is for health care providers.

Private Certification Courses

Big groups of trainees have the option of signing up for a private class with a personal schedule. Instructors can also be booked for private training as home, and even conferences and seminars by schools and companies. At Hamilton First Aid, we are dedicated to providing the most convenient way to learn.
