First Aid & CPR Levels:


Level B- Babies:

This level is predominantly required for child care workers, nannies, and babysitters who are in the care of newborns and infants. Please note the that The Academy For First Aid does not teach level B by itself. Instead, we have level C which includes both infants and children.


Level C- Children:

This is the universal level that is most commonly selected. It includes baby, children, and adult CPR. By default, level C should be chosen unless specified otherwise by your employer or educational institution.


Level A- Adult:

Only CPR for an adult will be taught. Level A is common for work places that do not have anyone under the age of 18 on site.


Level HCP:

This level is catered to health care professionals, such as doctors, nurses, personal support workers, dentists, dental hygienists, etc. It involves two person rescue breathing and CPR using a BVM (bag valve mask) and contains additional training for head and spinal injuries. HCP covers babies (infants), children, and adults.
