Have you volunteered with the GBCTA? Are you interested in free Standard First Aid Courses? This is a great opportunity to increase your First Aid skills.

Each year, the Kananaskis Region Public Engagement – Community and Partner Relations Program offers Standard First Aid certification courses for volunteers and the staff who support them. The courses are taught by Parks staff who work with volunteers in the field, so course scenarios are Parks-practical.

We invite you to join our Standard First Aid Certification – CPR with AED (it’s the 2-day course)  (on a first-come, first-served basis):
