Our Policies & Safety Protocols

Refresher/Recertification Courses

First Aid certifications issued by first aid providers in Nova Scotia are generally valid for three years. The Lifesaving Society Emergency First Aid certificate issued by Priority First Aid Training is valid for three years from the date of the course.

Individuals that have completed Emergency and Standard First Aid classes in the past need not take the entire course again.

The goal of Priority First Aid Training when delivering the refresher or recertification course for Emergency and Standard First Aid is to cover all of the material presented in the original course but at a faster pace.

Length of the Refresher / Recertification Courses

Emergency First Aid Recertifications will usually be completed in approximately three hours. Standard First Aid Recertifications will take approximately 6 to 7 hours.

I highly recommend Priority First Aid organized by Gordon! I hired them for a group training for our staff at a gym facility and they came to us bringing all the supplies. Very professional and accommodating. Most recently I needed to upgrade my qualifications for a new job and we were able to complete it safely via video chat. They were able to fit me in within the week. I couldn't be happier with my experience!


Highly recommended, the instructor was organized, had ample quality training equipment, was enthusiastic and extremely knowledgable!


I highly recommend priority first aid! I needed a nationally certified CPR-HCP course for my program asap. The priority first aid website was easy to navigate and Gordon was easy to get a hold of and very accommodating with my busy schedule. Great hands on learning in class and the instructor was very knowledgeable. Overall wonderful experience!


If you need first aid training or recertification go with Gordan and Priority First Aid. Same price, third of the time and super easy to work with. Private classes or small and he comes to you.
