What We Do

NEW FIRST AID STANDARDS COME INTO EFFECT ON JANUARY 15, 2020

ALBERTA LABOUR HAS ADOPTED THE CANADIAN STANDARDS ASSOCIATION STANDARD Z1210-17  FOR FIRST AID TRAINING IN THE PROVINCE OF ALBERTA.

How will these changes affect you?

If you are re-certifying an Advanced Adventure Medic or Wilderness First Responder (80 hour) course, then a 3-day re-certification course will no longer provide the minimum practical hours to be compliant with CSA standards.  From January 2020, the Rocky Mountain Adventure Medicine Re-certification course at the Advanced level will be a 5-day / 40-hour program in order to comply with these newly adopted Canadian standards.

“Thank you” just isn’t enough! We appreciated very much your tremendous support of SARSCENE this year, including RMAM’s sponsorship of the medical event at the Games and providing the first ever award for best performance in the event. Guy Kerr and the rest of the crew did a first rate job. Many thanks for your generosity of time, expertise and resources.
Carole, SARSCENE
I never got the chance to thank you personally at the end of the Wilderness First Aid Course that I took last week but I would like to thank you now. I enjoyed the course and liked your “laid back” approach to teaching the course, your stories about helping people in emergency situations will forever be imprinted on my brain.
