This will be a comprehensive two-day (16 hour) first aid course, equivalent to the Red Cross' Standard First Aid Certification, with the added value of having been expressly designed by the Child and Nature Alliance of Canada for those who support children and families in outdoor play in near-urban settings. During this course we will learn life-saving first aid skills, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), choking protocol, anaphylaxis protocol, AND focus on factors that affect outdoor play such a poisonous flora and fauna (i.e. poison ivy and ticks), injury prevention information and skills, and childhood injuries and illnesses. There will be a heavy emphasis on practical skills, practice, and scenarios, all rooted in the context of outdoor play. This course includes the most up-to-date and evidence-based first aid and CPR guidelines, and meets legislation requirements for provincial/territorial early childhood education and day care worker safety training. Participants will be issued a Red Cross Standard First Aid certification card upon completion.

Please note: this course will take place both inside and outside, in all weather.

The course will take place at the Ottawa Forest & Nature School (Forest School Canada and Child and Nature Alliance Headquarters).

Registration will open January 11, 2018 at 10 am EST. Spaces are limited so please register early. childnature.ca/forest-school-canada
