The Difference between Standard, Emergency and Childcare First Aid

One of the most common questions asked by participants who want to register for a first aid course is what is the difference between standard, child care, and emergency first aid classes.

Here are some facts that will hopefully clear some confusion:

  • Emergency first aid is an eight-hour course that includes basic first aid training.
  • Emergency Child care first aid is a more comprehensive eight-hour course, that focuses on first aid emergencies that can occur in a day care or child care environment.
  • Standard childcare first aid is even more comprehensive than emergency childcare first aid and requires sixteen hours to complete.
  • Standard first aid is one of the most popular first aid courses that includes a comprehensive and wide range of first aid topics. This course takes sixteen hours to complete.

If you still don’t know what first aid course to take:

  • Ask your academic adviser or employer. They should know what course and certification you need.
  • Contact the Edmonton First Aid. They should give you some good direction.
  • Take standard first aid. It is the most comprehensive course and its certificate can be used to meet different academic, work, and government requirements.
