Congratulations to the 38 St. Andrew’s School grade 10 students, who are the first class at the school to earn their First Aid Certificates through the Workplace Safety Course. The school expanded the course in the 2015/16 school year to include First Aid Training to give students a tremendous asset to their resumes before they enter the workforce.
“We are very proud of our grade 10 students at St. Andrew’s who earned their First Aid Certificates through this course,” said St. Andrew’s Assistant Principal Linda Vandenberg. “First Aid certification will make these students more desirable candidates for any field, and having them in our school makes St. Andrew’s an even safer place for everyone.”
The First Aid certification was completed over a three-week period in 40 minute blocks and two days of practical training. Additionally, students earned one credit toward their high school completion, included in the three credits total earned in the course.
The program also includes Workplace Safety Systems and Job Preparation, and is intended to better prepare students for entering the workforce.
The training will continue to be part of the Workplace Safety Course in the 2016/17 school year.
