Occupational First Aid Level 1 – Full Course or Recertification

In B.C., workplace first aid attendants must have a certificate that’s recognized by WorkSafeBC. OFA Level 1 is a basic level first aid training & certification program designed to provide life-saving first aid skills to workers in the industry.

Course Content:

  • Basic Life Support (CPR-A)
  • Minor Wound Management
  • Critical Airway, Breathing and Circulatory Interventions with C-Spine control
  • Documentation required by WorkSafeBC
Physical Demands / Contact: 
 
Occupational First Aid courses are physically demanding and require prolonged kneeling, working in stooped positions, and rolling patients into various positions on the floor.  Depending on the level and length of the course, physical demands can become rigorous. 
 
According to the WorkSafeBC OFA course materials, each class participant is required to function as attendant, helper and patient.  As a patient, fellow students will be practicing their first aid skills on you, including conducting a hands-on primary assessment and rapid body survey.  Participants must be aware that there is a good degree of physical contact involved.
 
Accommodation may be made for participants who indicate a problem with some of these activities.  Regardless of accommodation made during the class, participants will be required to demonstrate specific skills according to an accepted standard before certification is issued.

Course Length:

The full course is a 1 day (8 hour) program (including coffee & lunch breaks) while the Recertification course is a half-day (4 hours) with no lunch break.

Prerequisites:

Participants must have the physical ability to perform the required learning tasks. There is no previous first aid training required.

For Recertification, you must have a valid OFA 1 certificate, and must bring it to class for confirmation.

Certification:

Successful participants must demonstrate practical skills competency and achieve 70% on a multiple choice exam. Certification is valid for 3 years.

Course Fee:

The full course is $95 + GST and includes all course material and certificate. Classes available in English or Punjabi.

The recertification course is $70.00 plus GST.
