First Aid Training For The Public
If you’re not prepared to handle medical emergencies and your family member or friends are left untreated until an ambulance arrives, a victim’s condition may worsen and injuries can become far more debilitating.
It makes good sense to be trained to handle a medical emergency before it happens.
Safe + Sound First Aid Training Ltd. is one of the leading Red Cross Training Partners in the Tri-Cities (Coquitlam, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam) and Metro Vancouver. We offer a variety of first aid and CPR courses for individuals who want training and medical professionals requiring certification for their work.
We care whether you feel confident and in addition to providing superb practical training, you will receive a first aid manual to accompany the course. We will equip you with the skills and confidence to know what to do should the unexpected happen. We use practical hands on teaching methods, illustrated with real-life examples to help you understand what you need to do and why.

You can arrange for us to come and teach a course at your venue in the Tri-Cities, Vancouver, New Westminster, Burnaby, Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge, Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford or Richmond. Please contact us for information about onsite training.
We cater for all learning styles by using a combination of teaching techniques that include
- DVD support (video footage)
- PowerPoint presentation
- Instructional Posters
- Skills demonstration and practice
- Scenarios using props
- Moulage (fake injuries)
- Class discussions and Q&A
We have found that students learn more easily and have greater success when they get hands-on experience using realistic props.
Practical hands-on components are supported by a variety of training materials, based on course requirements, such as mannequins for CPR, AED (Automated External Defibrillator) trainers, bandages, splinting materials, barrier devices, first aid kits, auto-injector trainers and inhalers.
Our courses are taught by certified Red Cross First Aid Instructors who can tailor the course based on class composition. Our instructors bring a wealth of personal experience to their courses and their use of real life examples will make your first aid class entertaining and memorable.
