First Aid and CPR Training
Submitted By Karen Pike on Monday, June 11, 2018
The ORHC is introducing a partnership with Beat the Odds First Aid and CPR. We see many injuries as trainers, bench staff and in the rinks all season long. ORHC is now recommending that all of our trainers become emergency first aid and CPR certified in addition to their trainers course.
Standard first aid will be offered at $100. It will be a two day course allowing for level one trainers to upgrade to level two.  Emergency first aid to be offered at $80. It will be a one day course for Level One Trainers who don’t wish to upgrade.  

This course is a one day emergency first aid and CPR including AED course will provide our Trainers the most efficient and effective ways to treat injuries on or off the ice and know when to appropriately call on 911 for their services. It will provide a 3 year certification under the Red Cross and is also recognized by the WSIB.  The cost of the course will be $80 per person that attends and can be put into the team budget as well.

Please note, the ORHC does not cover the fee for this program.

We are also offering a two day standard first aid and CPR with AED course as well for $100.  This will offer three year certification under Red Cross as well as recognized by WSIB.  This course would be required for our level one Trainers who want to upgrade to a level two Trainer.  It will offer in depth training and knowledge for our Trainers and Convenors. 

The following dates will be provided for the course at the ORHC office and we can have 20 people per date for the course.

  • August 18th (9 am to 3 pm)
  • August 25th (9 am to 3 pm)
  • September 8th (9 am to 3 pm)
  • September 16th (9 am to 3 pm)

We will be offering more dates depending on the demand.We strongly encourage our Trainers to obtain this training and it is open to coaches as well. Convenors will also be asked to become certified as well especially in divisions where Trainers are not required.

If interested please reach out to Jaime Volk VP HL to sign up for your spot. Spots will be filled on a first come first serve basis and dates are subject to change.
