Stay Safe Course is perfect for children from 9 -11 years old who want to learn how to remain safe at home by themselves, what to do at home and remain safe, how to handle phone calls and visitors.  This is a very informative and interactive course.  Your child will receive a manual.  This course starts at 8:30 AM and ends 2:00 PM.

Due to COVID-19, I am not teaching this course at all.  When it is safe to do so, if you know at least 4 children who want to take this course, I can schedule the course with you.  Please use the Contact Box below if you are interested.


Please come in the training room with your child and give me your day time phone number just in case I need to contact you during the course, especially if there is an emergency.  Please pick up your child just outside of the training room so that I know your child left the area safely.

Please tell me before the course if your child has a learning disability and how I can assist your child during the course.

Please ensure your child has his/her own lunch with plenty of snacks and drinks, since these items will not be provided by me.

My name is Ingrid Hardy.  My business name is Ingrid Hardy Emergency Training.  I have been teaching first aid for the Canadian Red Cross since May, 2007. I became a Red Cross Training Partner in December 2014.  "Training Partner" means

I have my own business but I have my own financial account.  I have to follow the Red Cross protocol.  Red Cross courses are WSIB approved. Red Cross and I are responsbile of ensuring that my certificate is valid.

I teach first aid because I believe it is a life skill.  You can save your own life or someone else's life.  You never know when

you will need the skills.  Most people take this course because they are mandated to do so by their workplace/profession.

Practicing the skills is not only mandatory but it is the best way to remember what you have to do. In my class, you will get

lots of time to practice so that you will feel confident in your skills especially when you take the full course instead of the quick recert course.  Full course is taking the original course...slower pace and more practical time.  Quick recert course is more

fast-paced and you are expected to remember the is a quick review.  Quick recert course is not recommended for people who need more time to process the material and need more time to practice the skills.

I mainly teach at workplaces but I scheduled courses for the public as well.

For a workplace, please contact me at or call me at 613-840-5279 in order to arrange your private group course.  You may want to click on Scheduling Courses and Cancellation page first before contacting me. 


For individuals who need to take the course on his/her own, please click on Public Course and Schedule page and then find the course you need to take.  You can pay online by using the Pal Pal button in that section.  You do not have to join Pay Pal  when you want to pay with a credit card or debit. 

I am looking forward to teaching you.  Thanks for checking out my website.
