St Mark James training certificates are awarded to trainees who are able to complete and pass a course. The certificates are valid for three years throughout Canada.
Expiring certification can be renewed in refresher courses offered twice weekly at Vancouver First Aid.

Abdominal aortic aneurysm
Most people are aware that aneurysms are only found in the brain. However, aneurysms can be found in many different parts of the body. Due to a combination of weak vessel walls and persistent blood pressure, a portion of the blood vessel walls to balloon. This balloon is very prone to tears, a very dangerous complication, especially if the aneurysm ruptures. An abdominal aortic aneurysm is located on the abdominal aorta, a vessel roughly as big as a garden hose. This is a life-threatening condition because the aorta supplies blood to the rest of the body.
