Yes! We are open and offering in-class training during COVID.

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 for courses with the exception of advanced courses. Masks will be provided for the skills that require close proximity
- 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.

Our courses are very hands-on skills to learn. Courses will be conducted while maintaining social distancing requirements as students will have separate equipment during the course. In the event an item might be shared - for example an EPI pen trainer, proper sanitization will be completed between students as well as social distancing. For the advanced level training, close proximity skills will have protective equipment used and supplied when needed. Person to person contact is not done at this time.

All participants are welcome bring and wear a mask and/or gloves during their training. - As Alberta Health Authority recommends wearing a mask for situations where social distancing is not able to be maintained, AHASTI as indicated above has organized classes to meet social distancing requirements. If participants wish to wear a mask and/or gloves, we ask that you bring more than one, as the lowering/removal of the mask is still required for the ventilation skills and to demonstrate proper donning and doffing (putting on and taking off) gloves as part of the program. We do have hand sanitization stations is all classrooms as well as hand washing facilities. The equipment will be cleaned and disinfected for your use only during your program.

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.
