First Aid Training

First Aid Training

The WSCC sponsors and schedules first aid training with approved providers throughout communities in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

Registration is first come, first served. We will update the schedule throughout the year and encourage you to check this page periodically.

There is no cost to the participants: this training is FREE. Participants are responsible for their own costs to travel to and from the sessions.

If you register and cannot attend, please contact your training provider or call us at 1-800-661-0792.

Click on the community below to register. We require a minimum of 12 registrants and a maximum of 18 registrants per class.


  • Due to COVID-19 restrictions, first aid courses will be on hold until further notice.

For more information or to register by phone, please call us at 1-800-661-0792 and ask about first aid training.
