Children at a young age are more likely to have accidents and it is essential that the people who surround them know what actions to perform in case of an emergency. That is why the Laws regarding Early Childhood Centers and other Childhood care services of Quebec (R.S.Q., c. C – 8.2, a. 73) inform us that a first aid certificate is required for all workers in the workplace of Early Childhood care.

Dynamic and interesting

Thank you so much! We liked our training very much. It was interesting and we have learned new things that we never heard in other training courses. The instructor was dynamic, interesting, and she was answering all our questions. Bravo!

All the notions were coming back to me

I recently intervened when a lady had a head injury. I was surprised to see how quickly everything I learned in my classes was coming back. The craziest part about this story is that my brother, who works in the ER in St-Jerome, was there when the lady arrived in the hospital. He told me that my bandage was very well made, since the paramedics decided tp keep it for the transportation to the hospital. All this thanks to Santinel's classes!
