Full Certification Standard First Aid Course

wilderness-first-aidThe full certification Standard First Aid at OUR Ecovillage is on and will take place on the weekend of September 26 and 27. They still have some spots available, if you always dreamt to know this wonderful Permaculture-Educational-Homesteading Experiment and its amazing people and you want to be prepared for any emergency, please contact me or Satiya(at OUR Ecovillage) for details…it is my dream to be able to teach these courses more often and at more remote places/grassroots groups and communities…I am already a Canadian Red Cross Certified First Aid Instructor and I’m learning and practicing hard to become WorkSafeBC OFA and Wilderness certified by the end of this year. I’ll be also becoming a Red Cross partner which means I can deliver this with more freedom…
Contact me if you are curious or want a course to be delivered (with or without certification) at your community/group!

Here are the components of Red Cross Standard First Aid with CPR-C and AED course:
This 2-day Canadian Red Cross approved course is suited for the general public and workplace and meets first aid requirements Canada Labour Code Standard First Aid, and Licenced Child and Adult Care Facilities. This course is suited for police, first responders, lifeguards, ski patrollers, caring citizens and families with children. I also offer small tips for wilderness response/emergency and disaster planning all under Permaculture principles/ethics.
