About First Aid Courses

Under regulation 1101, the Workers' Safety & Insurance Board in Ontario mandates that all workplaces have trained first aid employees on site ( Those with small numbers of staff may need an 8-hour Emergency First Aid class. Those with more staff require Standard First Aid, which takes 16 hours. Both classes include CPR. First aid training is ideal for anyone wanting to know how to handle emergencies, whether they occur at home, at work or in public spaces. These courses have no prerequisites. They are valid for 3 years, although we recommend retraining every 2 years to keep skills sharp.

ARC is an authorized provider of EMS First Aid and Life Saving Society programs, both approved by the Workers’ Safety & Insurance Board. For more information, visit

First aid training can seem expensive, especially to small businesses. How does this business cost translate to value? There are several ways that managing workplace injuries through proper first aid saves money:

  • The injured worker must be paid for lost time
  • New workers must be acquired and trained to replace the injured worker temporarily
  • High rates of injury result in higher insurance premiums and WSIB costs
  • Injuries at work may slow or stop production, often for long periods of time
  • Showing staff you care about their safety and well-being is good for morale, and good morale is the basis of a successful business. Bad morale results in slower and poorer quality work.

By training workers in first aid, we provide them with the tools to both PREVENT workplace injuries and emergencies, and also to MANAGE those emergencies to minimize cost to the injured staff member and employer.

About CPR Courses

CPR courses are shorter than first aid, and range from 2 to 8 hours, depending on the level of certification and complexity. All CPR courses are taught to Heart and Stroke Foundation and International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) standards. Classes are divided by the ages of the patients - a short course might deal with adults only, or infants and children only, where a longer course would deal with all 3. Finally, Professional Rescuer CPR is ideal for those in medical professions such as nursing who need to keep up skills such as Oxygen Delivery and Bag Valve Mask ventilation. We recommend annual recertification of CPR courses. There are no prerequisites for CPR.
