Class Cancellations - Covid-19

As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 situation please know that the safety and wellness of our students, staff, instructors and volunteers are our top priorities. As such, the decision is been made to suspend all Training Centre instructional activities, effective 5pm, Tuesday March 17, 2020. We will monitor this on a daily basis and are reaching out to our students with additional information. Social distancing is essential, and as our First Aid and CPR classes are group gatherings in close quarters, we want to ensure the safety of our instructors and clients. The most important way we can help increase public safety and wellness is by limiting our interactions through our classes. Students may transfer to another class in the future or to our blended online training at no cost. Please contact us at 1-780-482-7863 to speak with one of our customer service representatives.

 

CERTIFICATION CONCESSIONS

In light of current events and the suspension of training caused by the spread of COVID-19, St. John Ambulance, Alberta Council, with authority from Alberta Labour – OHS, will be making concessions on training certification.
