First Aid Courses
Well its obvious that riding season is here. We’ve been in contact with St. John’s Ambulance and worked out a deal with them. They have created a lesson plan for us and are willing to teach the course in a variety of locations to be as convient as possible to our members. The course cost is $65 (to be confirmed) and is 8 hours of class time with ½ hour lunch break. Class sizes are from 8 to 12. For those that that live in the nether regions where you cannot meet the minimum class size, they will be offering the Level 1 Basic course in replace of the custom course.
***Note: Since this is a course has been designed for us, it does not meet WCB standards***

What we’d like to do is get an idea as too who is interested and where your from. There are about 30 different branches that St. John Ambulance can teach the course.
If your interested, please post up and choose a Region where you’d like to take the course. If your region isn’t list, PM me and I’ll add it. If your not interest, please choose “I will not attend”.
**Dates are not confirmed. St John's has mentioned that one day weekend courses are perfered. We will confirm dates as soon as we get a head count. We have also discussed that the courses will be ongoing.**
