 Standard First Aid (SFA) is the most comprehensive first aid training program for the general public and is a prerequisite for the National Lifeguard program.

Standard First Aid trains rescuers in the skills and knowledge needed to assess and provide basic life support to patients with airway, breathing, or circulatory emergencies as well as how to manage medical, Musco-skeletal and environmental emergencies.

The Lifesaving Society follows the 2010 ILCOR (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation) guidelines and includes AED training.  This course includes CPR-C certification.

Reference the "Evaluation and Other Items" box below for course topics and descriptions.

Please note that since December 2012, the Lifesaving Society only accepts pre-requisites for its National Lifeguard program from one of these recognized Canadian agencies: Lifesaving Society, Heart and Stroke Foundation Canada, Canadian Red Cross, St John Ambulance, Canadian Ski Patrol. If a candidate shows up to a National Lifeguard course with a first aid pre-requisite that is not with one of these recognized agencies will not be allowed to continue with the course.
