Calgary: First Aid/CPR/BLS/AED

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE RED CROSS AND HEART AND STROKE CERTIFICATIONS?
As you see from the course descriptions, the content is very similar and both organizations are approved for workplaces. The difference is how the courses are delivered. The Canadian Red Cross courses are instructor lead with a learning centered approached. The Heart and Stroke courses are either Video or Power Point lead with the Instructor facilitation. Both are excellent courses and you will have lots of practice time with skills in both. Pick the one that meets your learning style or the one that your employer or educational institution has specifically requested you to attend.
