Lifesaver 101 Ontario Lifesaver Training Centres Reminds Students to Get Mandatory First Aid and CPR Certification before Heading Back to School

Lifesaver 101 First Aid & CPR Training Inc., a company that offers Standard and Emergency First Aid, AED and CPR certification courses in Ontario, reminds post-secondary school students before heading back to school in September that First Aid and CPR Certification is mandatory for many college and university programs

PICKERING, ON--(Marketwired - August 30, 2016) - Lifesaver 101 First Aid & CPR Training Inc. (www.lifesaver101.com), a company that provides courses in Standard and Emergency First Aid, CPR certification and Automated External Defibrillation training reminds post-secondary school students to ensure that they have completed all necessary First Aid and CPR training before heading back to school in September. For many college and university academic programs it is mandatory that students have all necessary certifications before they start class.

"There are a surprising number of academic post-secondary courses that require at least some type of first aid certification," says Sean Wyers, Owner of Lifesaver 101. "Nursing, Personal Support Worker (PSW) and Dental Hygiene programs are ones that you would expect would have prerequisite first aid training requirements. However, many might not suspect that programs like Radiology, Early Childhood Education and Massage Therapy, to name a few, also have First Aid and CPR training requirements that are mandatory to obtain before classes begin. Often, if a student doesn't have the required certificate, they will be prevented from taking part in their program until they do."

"First-year students generally need to have Standard First Aid & CPR Level C + AED. We offer this program at all of our Ontario Lifesaver 101 training centres. Some programs, such as Nursing, require a higher level of CPR certification. Instead of CPR Level C, many nursing students require an upgrade to Health Care Provider (HCP) Level CPR. Our centres can provide this upgrade upon request at no addition charge. In addition to the Standard First Aid course, many academic programs require annual CPR Level C or HCP recertification. This is available to students at our training centres for a special student rate of $40 including HST. Once again, if the student requires an upgrade to the Health Care Provider (HCP) Level CPR, we can provide this at no addition charge. The student just has to let us know when they register for their course." explains Wyers.

"It's important for students to know their course requirements, especially what level of First Aid and CPR training they need, and to get it before their college or university program starts. Missing the first week or two of classes because they have failed to submit the necessary certification could spell disaster for their academic year. The good news is there is still time to take all Standard First Aid & CPR Level classes before school begins in September," adds Wyers.
