About Us

Experienced Instructors


Our paramedic instructors have years of teaching experience, and bring real-life lessons to the classroom. We feel strongly that first aid and CPR are important skills to learn, so we're passionate about providing an interactive learning experience which is both educational and fun. 

Red Cross & Ottawa Paramedic Service Training Partner


We offer courses from both the Red Cross and the Ottawa Paramedic Service.  We work hard to ensure our courses conform to current guidelines, and you can be sure you'll receive the most up-to-date and useful training available.

Community Engagement


At This Is First Aid, we love engaging with our community.  5-10% of our profits are donated to local charities, and we have special deals on courses for not-for-profit organizations. We offer workshops and seminars to new Canadians, and are always happy to work with translators for our ESL clients.
