Mississauga First Aid features CPR “only” programs and courses for individuals that only require cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillator training and certification. We feature three different popular CPR courses. The shortest and simplest CPR program is basic life support cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR level “A”). A more comprehensive and longer course is CPR level “C”. The most detailed course designed for individuals that work in the health care industry is CPR level “C” for health care providers (also known as CPR “HCP”). All of these workplace approved programs include education, training and certification in the use of automated external defibrillators (AED). The page will briefly outline each of these CPR courses.
