Now that we know a little more about the providers, lets explore what happens when you meet their training partners. Each provider has a list of authorized training partners. These partners have certified instructors, policies and programs to deliver the guidelines and instructions created by their provider. Here in lies the confusion and the key to how to choose a good CPR Training Toronto partner for yourself.
Locally Synergy offers some of the most comprehensive and affordable First Aid and CPR courses Toronto around! We work with large universities, employers and daycare operators ensuring that our CPR Training Courses meet and exceed all expectations.
When selecting a training partner program, whether that is CPR Level HCP or CPR Recertification or Standard First Aid and CPR/AED, it is important to make sure the partner you are certifying with:
- is an authorized Training Partner
- offers the program you require
- has experienced instructors
- has policies available online for your review
- provides adequate training time*
- provides registration in a national database
- has competitive pricing
- has a history of health and educational experience
- upholds their providers guidelines
- provides a suitable equipment ratio
- has a clean and well suited training facility
- has the necessary equipment and supplies
- Online and telephone support
- Online registration
- Bundled programs
*this is an important fact because training times are generally standardized across the world.
The training partner you select will ultimately determine whether you will be provided with the education and skillset necessary to perform life saving CPR or First Aid when the time arises. It is an important decision and one that you should take seriously.
It is quite clear that not all training partners uphold these values and requirements. There simply is no way you can recertify CPR in 2 hours with all training requirements and material that needs to be covered! If you are looking for a fast and cheap way to certify yourself in First Aid or CPR, perhaps you should consider why you are doing it in the first place. Cutting corners in your training can potentially lead to your inability to save a life if that opportunity arises. The experience of your training partner should be a good indication of type of education they are going to deliver. A good partner should have an easy to read and understand website that outlines their programs, pricing and registration. A good partner should have their policies available online and should offer the ability to talk to someone on the phone or by email. Finally, a good partner should offer competitive pricing – if you are getting a program that generally cost $50 everywhere for $25 and completed in ½ the time…its time think again!
