Individuals that need to complete CPR training without any first aid training can do so through workplace approved stand-alone CPR classes. We offer three levels of stand-alone CPR training. These levels range in length and complexity. CPR level “A”, also referred to as CPR for basic life support, is the simplest and shortest CPR course available. CPR “C” is more comprehensive and CPR “HCP” is the most detailed and lengthy CPR course. All of our workplace approved CPR programs include training in the use of AED’s. This page will outline the CPR courses that we offer in Halifax.
