AEDs are machines that are attached to the chest and supply the heart with needed shock. Stand-alone or CPR/AED only classes are also available. These first aid programs are around 15-16 hours long.
CPR and AED Only Classes
There are three levels that a student can choose from (A, C, and HCP), lasting 4, 5, and 6 hours long respectively.
Private In-House and At Office Courses
All trainers are certified by St Mark James so you are assured of quality training. Students can book them for special at-home training, or workshops and conferences. Instructors have different rates and schedules so just give a call or send an e-mail to inquire about them.
St Mark James Certification
To pass a class, a student needs the following:
- At least 75 percent on the written exam
- Good demonstration of skills
- Complete attendance
All students receive certificate cards once they pass a class. They can request wall-mount certificates as well. All certificates are only valid for three years and have to be renewed after. Recertification classes are available twice weekly. First aid recertification is 6-8 hours long, inclusive of CPR level C recertification.
