First aid training programs run for 16 hours
First aid training covers different emergency situations and needed first aid skills to address them. Students are taught about emergency medical services (EMS), wound care, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillation (AED), and a variety of different injuries. Stand-alone classes for CPR are also available, inclusive of AED training. AEDs are machines that supply the heart with needed shock in the case of arrest.
Stand-alone CPR/AED classes have three levels: A, C, and HCP.
These levels are 4, 5, and 6 hours long respectively.
Private trainers are available for different events.
Fort McMurray First Aid also offers private trainers for special training at home or for events such as conferences and outings. All instructors with this service provider are certified by St Mark James so you’re sure to get quality training. Just send an e-mail or give me a call to inquire about booking private trainers.
Certificates from St Mark James are awarded after training.
To pass, a student is required to have complete attendance, at least 75 percent on the written exam, and good skill demonstration. Once a student passes a class, he or she is awarded a certificate card from St Mark James. Wall-mount-sized certificates are available upon request.
Certificates are only valid for three years but can be renewed through recertification classes. Standard first aid recertification is 8 hours long, inclusive of CPR level C training, and held twice a week.

Managing motion sickness
People usually experience motion sickness due to repetitive movement while in a moving vehicle. People usually get sick on boats and buses. Dizziness is felt first, followed by vomiting. As you travel more and more frequently, motion sickness tends to be kept at bay. To prevent motion sickness, you can plan the following ahead:
- On a ship: request a room in the front or middle of the ship, near the water level
- On a place: ask for a seat over the front edge of any of the wings and direct the air vent flow to your face
- On a train: choose a seat near the front and next to a window
- In an automobile: choose the passenger’s seat or drive
