#1 EMERGENCY CHILDCARE FIRST AID WITH CPR LEVEL B* / AED TRAINING     8hours                $79.00/pr **

This course is for Parents and Family as well as for Childcare workers who are taking care of children.
The course highlights how to prevent injury by identifying where and how most injuries for children happen and why they are not "accidents". Participants learn what to do in a sudden emergency when someone stops breathing or their heart stops beating, such as choking, drowning, falls, allergic reaction etc.  It includes instruction in Baby/Child/Adult CPR and how to operate an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). Also covered is information about a wide range of first aid topics, such as how to stop bleeding, clean cuts, treat fevers, broken bones, burns, poisoning, head injuries or things stuck in a nose etc.
Included with the course is access to a comphrensive on-line manual and a shorter Class Copy which participants access through their account opened on the Red Cross web site. A hard copy of the Class Copy is available to follow during the class time. Participants can choose to purchase a hard copy of this manual for $15.00 during the course. It is also available on the Red Cross shopping cart.
For Daycare caregivers or people working with children who are required to have a first aid course for employment this course covers and exceeds the requirements (effective April 2016) of the Ministrie de Famille which mandates that a course must be 8 hours covering Childhood First Aid and includes training in what to do for severe allergic reactions. The certification wallet size card specifies these requirements of the Ministrie. Completion of the course requires full attendance and successfully completing a multiple choice quiz at the end of the course. Participants print their own certification wallet size card or certificate from their account opened with the Red Cross. This account is made available through an email sent from the Red Cross a few days after the course. Renewal is 3 years.

Step 3 Confirmation 

Since rooms where the course is held at the hospital may change, additional information including directions to St. Mary's Hospital and room location is emailed out a few days before the course. Check your junk mail if you have not received the notice in this time frame.

Additional Information

Receipts. Receipts for the course are emailed a few days after the course. For those whom a First Aid Course can be related to your work, the receipts can be used for a credit on income taxes.

Cancellation If, for any reason after registering, you are not able to attend, please notify us immediately. Notice must be given 48 hours before the start time of the day of the course to receive full credit for next course or a refund (chq torn up). There is a cancellation fee for shorter than this notice. After two consecutive cancellations, there is no refund. Because numbers in courses are small, there is no refund if you attend only part of a course. There is a limited opportunity to make up the remaining part of the course at another time depending on numbers of participants and room size. Courses may be cancelled due to insufficient registration.

Certification. All participants in courses receive accreditation from the Red Cross. The Certifcate as well as wallet size cards are now made available on-line in a personal account set up for each participant. You will receive an email from the Red Cross after the course is successfully completed. If at any time you loose your card, you can log back in to reprint your card.

If your employers asks for some other verification that you have taken the course before you can access your card on-line, Babysecure can write and send by email a transition letter to confirm you attended the course. There is a $25.00 fee to do this. If you need renew your certification for employment, it is always better to plan to make arrangements to take the renewal course a few months before your current card expires.

Keeping in touch In order to avoid playing telephone tag with numbers of people, the majority of communication between participants in courses and Babysecure will be done by email. Please check your emails regularly after signing up for a course.
