On July 1st, Help First Aid opens the doors to their full-time First Aid training facility in Collingwood, Ontario, at 1 First St Suite 218, in a collaborative move with The Clever Office.
Owner of Help First Aid, Elijah McCaffrey, has had to use the life-saving skills he trains as a firefighter & diving instructor, and is a Red Cross Training Partner
Check out this fabulous review from a trainee of Elijah's:
|I had a great experience doing my Standard First Aid CPR-C course with Elijah. Despite the fact that I was the only student registered he still ran the course for me rather than cancelled. Heâ€™s a funny and knowledgeable guy and one that has actually used his First Aid skills in action with his experience as a firefighter and dive instructor. Talking with him itâ€™s clear that he is passionate about the material and he has gone out of his way to put his own touch on the course to streamline it and make it more enjoyable for students, many of whom are required to be there for employment.
Elijah was able to answer any questions I had without hesitation and allowed me to run the practical components as many times as I felt were necessary. He places a strong importance on cleanliness and reducing the spread of germs by meticulously cleaning all his equipment daily (mannequins, AED, choking trainer) which is important - the last thing anyone wants while doing a required course (especially one related to health) is to get sick after the fact.
I would absolutely recommend him as an instructor and if/when the time comes for me to do a recertification or a new certification I wouldnâ€™t hesitate to learn from him again. He even laminates your card so you wonâ€™t ruin it over the 3 years the cert is valid.
First Aid training available runs from just below paramedic level, to standard CPR, EMR, AED, and Babysitting courses.
We are super pleased to be welcoming Elijah and Help First Aid to The Clever Office!
