First Aid and CPR Training in Toronto

Finding a Ontario WSIB approved first aid and CPR training provider in the Toronto metropolitan region can be difficult. Many providers do not offer credible certifications and others offer courses sparingly throughout the city. Toronto First Aid is the leader of workplace and academic approved training courses in the city and provides a variety of courses on weekdays, weekends and even night courses. A number of courses are available including private classes, re-certifications, standard first aid, emergency first aid, CPR and AED “only” and food handling programs. Participants can also strengthen their resumes by taking on-line safety courses such as TDG and WHMIS. Registration for courses is surprisingly easy and convenient with multiple methods of registration available. You can visit the Toronto First Aid website here for a complete list of available training programs and an on-line registration form.
