Like many of you, AHASTI is monitoring updates on COVID-19 very closely. As this situation changes, so will our response. AHASTI is committed to assisting our communities with these lifesaving skills, and that will continue through this current pandemic.

We want to assure all our clients we will continue to offer our First Aid and CPR training with these extra precautions for any on-site training.

- Decreased class sizes to ensure Social Distancing is achieved.
- Added additional cleaning products in all locations
- Instructed our staff to refrain from person to person contact as much as possible
- Increased cleaning efforts in our facilities and equipment (mats, manikins, etc.)
- Providing all participants electronic copies of the course material and ask all participants to save onto their own devices and bring to class.

First Aid and CPR are very hands-on skills to learn, but we will make reasonable accommodations to reduce the risk of student-to-student transmission.

We will continue to monitor this situation and will provide more updates as necessary in the coming days.

In the event of a closure, all our students will be contacted via email/phone and a credit will be placed on your account for a future course. This credit will not expire. Otherwise, cancellation and refund policy will remain in effect.

We ask any participant to contact our office BEFORE coming to class if they have a fever or respiratory symptoms; they have recently travelled to a country with a travel advisory due to COVID-19; or if they have been in contact with a person who has travelled to a country with a travel advisory. In this case, AHASTI will happily reschedule your program. Phone 403-670-5406 (please leave a detailed message if we miss you) or email If we have not heard from you, we assume you will be joining your program as scheduled and that if you don't arrive a full forfeit of course fees will apply.
