Occupational First Aid Level 3 (OFA L3)

New 2018 Updated course

Course name change starting September 2024 will be Advanced First Aid (OFA L3)

Occupational First Aid Level 3 (OFA L3)

General Information

Occupational First Aid Level 3 (OFA L3) is a 70 hour program designed to provide the first aid attendant with the skills to function as part of an effective first aid program in the work place.

The course consists of Lessons involving a minimum of 70 hours of classroom study and practice. Pre-reading for each lesson is essential. Lectures will cover those areas essential for learning emergency care, but the need for pre-reading and continual review is essential for the understanding of first aid subjects covered in each lesson.

Candidates must be at least 16 years of age and be able to understand and perform the first aid skills required to complete the learning tasks. No previous first aid training is required. This means you do not need to take Occupational First Aid Level 1 (OFA L1) or Occupational First Aid Level 2 (OFA L2) prior to taking this course.


Course participants are encouraged to assist in improving pre-hospital care of injured workers by promoting:
Workplace compliance with the Occupational First Aid Regulation
Effective interaction between attendants, employers and workers
Efficient co-operation with higher levels of medical care, such as the BC Ambulance Service and hospital emergency personnel


For walk-in patients that are sent back to work after treatment we give them a handout. These handouts used to be part of the printed material you receive during training, but not anymore. Please find the link to this document here for download.

What to do after booking your spot in the course:

Please make an appointment to come pick up your student binder from our location. (please contact us prior so we are there and we have your materials)

We will go over pre-reading assignments that need to be completed prior to attending first day of class. Any questions regarding the course can be answered at that time too.
