Académie Saint-Bernard - High Quality First Aid Training

Our first aid training for healthcare professionals is designed to meet the needs of nurses working in healthcare facilities. Here are the key points of our "First Aid - Healthcare Professional (16h) - CSA Z1210-17 compliant" training course

Certification in accordance with CSA Standard Z-1210-17

Our program is carefully designed to comply with the CSA Z-1210-17 standard, guaranteeing complete and up-to-date training.

Participants will receive certification in strict compliance with this standard, attesting to their competence in intermediate-level first aid.

Training tailored to nurses

Training is specifically designed to meet the needs of nurses, who are essential to the delivery of healthcare.

It enhances the safety and well-being of patients in CHSLDs (Centres d'Hébergement de Soins de Longue Durée) and other healthcare environments.

Training objectives

Strengthen first aid skills, including airway management, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and more.

Facilitate regulatory compliance for CHSLDs, in accordance with CSA Z-1210-17.

Issue a certificate of achievement in intermediate first aid at the end of training.


Our training offers an exceptional opportunity for healthcare professionals to acquire essential first aid skills, in compliance with the most stringent CSA standards.

We are committed to the safety and well-being of our beneficiaries and are proud to contribute to the preparation of highly skilled and competent professionals.


1. Furthermore, according to article 28 of the "MANUEL D'APPLICATION ET GUIDE DE VÉRIFICATION DE LA CONFORMITÉ RÈGLEMENT SUR LA CERTIFICATION DES RÉSIDENCES PRIVÉES POUR AÎNÉS" of the "Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux" (pages 104 - 106):

" 2. In a category 3 or 4 RPP, unless he or she is a nurse or nursing assistant, any person responsible for providing supervision in the RPP pursuant to sections 19 to 20.1 of the Regulation (whether a resident, supervising tenant or volunteer) holds (valid) certificates of successful completion of general first aid training meeting the requirements of the first paragraph of section 28 of the Regulation. (No transitional measures.)"

  • Thus, the obligation of nurses and nursing assistants is limited to CPR training, unless otherwise specified: "unless she is a nurse, a nursing assistant". To meet this requirement, we offer "CPR/AED - Health Professional (5h)" training, recognized by the OIIQ and OIIAQ.

However, aware of potential gaps in the interpretation of legislation, we have introduced the "First Aid - Health Care Professional (16h) - CSA Z1210-17 compliant" training program. The main aim of this training is to simplify the certification validation process, equip nurses and nursing assistants and create a safer environment for the elderly. Although this training is longer than that required, its validity extends over two (2) years, compared with one (1) year for CPR training.

For these reasons, and in keeping with our vision, we recommend First Aid training to promote a safer environment. Although this training requires a higher number of hours than that required for nurses and nursing assistants, our training hours can be counted towards the mandatory annual training hours of their professional orders.
