What is Level 2 First Aid Training and Why do you Need It?

If you’re a working professional, you probably had to attend a vocational institute to develop the necessary skills for your current job.

Everything we do in life, we get better at with time and practice. Unfortunately, many of us don’t have the luxury of time—which inhibits us from exploring new learning opportunities.

Metro Safety Training believes in ensuring the safety of all, regardless of your profession and background. We’re all faced with emergency crises from time to time, and it pays to learn the basics of first aid training.

Our First Aid Level 2 Program is designed for those who can’t devote 70 hours to emergency training.

The 36-hour course will equip you with necessary first aid skills as highlighted in the guidelines of Work Safe BC.
