Primary Care First Aid for Practitioners

We are excited to announce Bowen Colleges affiliation with Primary Care First Aid to provide practitioners with the skills they need to practice professionally. To comply with the highest standards set out by the Canadian Examining Board of Health Care Practitioners (CEBHCP) the necessary First aid training/Level C is a requirement for receiving and keeping your licence.

Why Primary Care First Aid?

We chose Primary Care First Aid as they tailor their First Aid training to practitioners allowing hands on practical life saving techniques which allow you to practice, ask questions and gain true insight to what it is like in the field to save a life.

With Primary Care First Aid, you’ll be getting first aid instruction from experienced fire firefighter personnel with real life experience.  Instructors pass on what it’s actually like applying first aid in emergency situations. This makes for an extremely high success rate inside and outside the classroom.  We’ve taught students from a wide variety of occupations, and we tailor each class to those specific jobs.  Our fun and engaging classes make learning first aid easy, and we give students the confidence to step in and help someone when it matters most.
