Out of respect for individual choices about health, we will not ask you your vaccine status, or for your vaccine passport. However, we do not want to put you or ourselves at undue risk from infectious diseases. In light of the recent pandemic, we are reducing class sizes or increasing venue sizes, so that we can better accommodate physical spacing. Personal procedure masks are not required for classroom participation, but they are recommended. Instructional techniques have been adapted to reduce potential spread of droplets. Hand sanitizer is available.  

We are all trying our best to keep our community safe. If you are ill, or have been exposed to a symptomatic person, contact your instructor. Please do not attend the class if you are symptomatic. Fees will be credited to the next available course, or refunded.  

Please, be kind, and take care of each other.

Responsive Instructors can can help you learn basic life-saving skills, renew your first aid skills, or even advance your professional practice.  The course you need may depend upon your goals,  local legislation, your professional requirements, how much time you have to commit to your first-aid education can all factor into which course is right for you.

Responsive First Aid is also a Red Cross First Aid Instructor Development Centre (IDC).  If you are a qualified and experienced first aid attendant and would like to continue to up your game, teaching may just be the hone that gives you the edge you desire.
