The WorkSafeBC Occupational First Aid Level 3 course is a 70 hour program designed for remote worksites or employers with large workforces more than 20 minutes from medical aid. Initial certification requires full participation and course attendance plus passing both a written and practical exam. Upon successful completion the participant will receive certification that is valid for three years.
The student will learn advanced lifesaving techniques as well as becoming fast and efficient to prepare a patient for transport to medical aid (including helicopter transport). They will learn to objectively record observed or reported signs and symptoms of injuries, and refer for medical treatment workers with injuries considered by the first aid attendant as being serious or beyond the scope of the attendant’s training.
