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.

Practising 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 practise 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.
