| First aid and
CPR training is designed for the GROUPS of lay rescuers who want to
know how to help others in emergencies. ARC is an
authorized provider of EMS First Aid courses, a WSIB approved
training agency. While we feel first aid is important for everyone, we cannot service individuals in this area - sorry!
classes take emergency training to the next level. These courses
are perfect for those who want to train their workplace responders to the next level. It is also well-suited to the individual wanting to become a professional rescuer
such as fire fighter or paramedic, and also for lay rescuer
who wants to learn more than a first aid class can teach. ARC is Ontario's leader in First Responder training, offering courses for the Industrial, Emergency, Pedatric or Aquatic First Responder, as well as being the only agency (to our knowledge) currently offering Emergency Medical Responder courses. This 3-week course, when combined with the EFR prerequisite, makes a 160 hour program similar to the EMT-B course in the U.S. It is the first level of medic in Canada, and we are the only agency currently runing courses. EMR courses are taught to Paramedic Association of Canada standards.
