Please note: We can offer this program to private groups, however, our public training courses will be the regular "Standard First Aid" program as opposed to "Standard Childcare". The provincial regulations at this level require a intermediate first aid program and the "Standard First Aid" Certificate will also be valid at both childcare and non childcare industries, so it is generally a better option for most individuals.
Of course, you can ask the instructor specific questions regarding children and the childcare manual can be emailed if requested.
