First Aid Training
CMHA is now providing emergency first aid training for all of its teams. Improvements to our safety policy now allow us ensure a trained first aid attendant will be available for our players.
At a recent BC Hockey AGM it was suggested that first aid training will become a required part of the HCSP position in the coming years. A common problem with recruiting a volunteer for the position of HCSP is an apparent lack of confidence in dealing with medical emergencies. Formal first aid training may be a way of addressing this short-coming. For the most part, the HCSP is not a first aid attendant. They are they to manage risk, and appoint somebody with the appropriate level of training or knowledge to deal with medical emergencies.
In the event a team does not have any professional medical parents ( doctor, nurse, first responders) then CMHA will require a volunteer to complete an emergency first aid course.

or you may register by phone; (604-945-7277)
Once you have paid for and completed the course request a reimbursement from CMHA, and inform your team manager. Teams are required to have an attendant in place no later than December 1st.
