First Aid & CPR Training

Sports and Recreation Services provides first aid certification under the Lifesaving Society. This first aid certification is recognized by WSIB and is valid for 2 years. Training is facilitated by our highly experienced First Aid Instructors who have hands-on first aid experience in both aquatic and non-aquatic settings. We are proud that our courses are taught to students, staff, faculty and families by members of our student-staff team!

Training is held at the Western Student Recreation Centre, but can also be facilitated in a location at your choice provided that basic training room requirements are available. All equipment is provided on-course.

We currently offer Standard First Aid with CPR-C full courses and recertification courses.
