Saskatoon, SK

SFA/CPR C (AED) full course class

MTAS office classroom, Saskatoon

Amanda Everitt, Certified Red Cross Trainer, with Timeline Safety Training, is instructing a CPR (AED) / Standard First Aid full course class.
Open to everyone.

Contact: Amanda Everitt
Tel: 306-717-2451

DATE:  Sunday, March 1st, 2020
TIME: 9am - 5pm
LOCATION: MTAS office - #22 - 1738 Quebec Avenue, Saskatoon


Every 5 years the Red Cross reviews and updates their programs.  One of the very exciting things that is now offered is a blended learning option, not only for full course participants, but also for re-certifications.

Full course participants review the online PowerPoint module (approx. 8 hours to complete) and then have one day in classroom.

Registrations must be received no later than one week prior to the class date, to allow everyone plenty of time to complete the online learning.
Amanda will set up the online class and provide everyone with a personal access code and additional instructions. 

Participants complete the online theory module on their own time and bring their certificate of completion to the classroom session.  Since it is purely skills training, the full course is now only 1 day of class time, from 9am – 5:00pm, which includes time for Q and A.

First Responder to Sexual Assault Training

With increased media attention and high profile cases, more people are coming forward with their own, personal stories of sexual violence. Would you know what to do if someone told you they were the victim of sexual abuse or assault? Would you know how to react appropriately, what their options are, or the appropriate community agencies for referral?

Many professionals in the health and mental healthcare fields are likely to be the first person a survivor shares their story with—and that first interaction can make or break the survivor’s decision to move forward with a rape kit at the hospital, getting mental health support, or police reporting.

It’s no small thing being trusted with someone’s story of sexual abuse, so we know you want to be prepared.

The Saskatoon Sexual Assault & Information Centre (SSAIC) is excited to offer a 2-day intensive course called First Responder to Sexual Assault Training™. The course content was developed and trademarked by the Association of Alberta Sexual Assault Services (AASAS), and SSAIC has three accredited facilitators who can offer this training in our home community of Saskatoon.
