Members are initially trained to a Standard First Aid level and through weekly meetings and additional training they can achieve their Advanced First Aid certificate.
In Basic training members learn how to perform a pre-hospital patient assessment, Healthcare Provider CPR w/ AED, and the skills necessary to assist a person with life threatening conditions such as choking, severe bleeding and cardiac arrest. This training meets or exceeds the Alberta requirements for Standard First Aid. Cadets follow the medical control guidelines established by Alberta Health Services.

In Advanced training members will build on the skills learned in the previous training and further expand their knowledge base in anatomy and physiology, advanced pre-hospital patient assessments, testing blood glucose levels and symptom relief medications. Upon completion of the training candidates will receive a certificate in Advanced First Aid from our national training partner.
