First Aid Programs
Learn Important Live-saving Skills
First Aid is not just for the Aquatic environment but for everyday life. Many jobs ask for their employees to attain the Standard First Aid and CPR “C” training to know that their staff are adequately prepared in case of an accident or emergency were to occur. These classes are all dry and take place in our classroom in unit #10.
The Swim Academy offers a wide variety of courses from Standard First Aid to Babysitting Courses to make sure our clients are safe and well equipped. You don’t have time to take a full course? Try one of our workshops that will teach you the basics of what you need to know for most first aid situations that occur in the home. What to do if your child has a tumble, a toddler chokes on a marble, an elder in the home has a stroke, or a parent spills boiling water on themselves. These workshops will help you have the tools needed to limit the damage and safely learn how to manage pain before you can see an emergency specialist.
