Emergency First Aid is one-day program that provides an overview of life-saving first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Legislated First Aid training requirements are established by provincial and territorial governments; Emergency First Aid may not be adequate for workplaces in all jurisdictions.
Arctic Response recommends Standard First Aid over Emergency First Aid given the expanded scope of training and additional scenario training time to improve actual response capabilities.
Emergency First Aid content includes:
- Legal and liability issues
- The EMS system
- Primary survey
- Airway emergencies
- Breathing and circulation emergencies
- CPR with Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
- Wound care
The First Aid programs taught by Arctic Response meet or exceed national, territorial and provincial standards and incorporate the most recent 2010 Heart and Stroke CPR Guidelines. Additionally, Arctic Response sits on the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Technical Committee currently developing CSA standards for Workplace First Aid.

- A – Adult patients | 1/2 day
- B – Adult and child patients | 1/2 day
- C – Adult, child, and infant patients | 1/2 day
- HCP-C For Healthcare Providers, adult, child, and infant patients | 1/2 day
