First Aid and Rescue Training for the Real World

Professional First Aid Training and Emergency Response

A trusted provider


I would recommend this company to anyone looking for certification in EMR. It is a lengthy course and the knowledge base is very demanding. I found that Swift Response provided a very good balance of education styles. This really helped me with the enjoyment and understanding of the required materials. I look forward to coming back to this company when I am eligible to re-certify.

For anyone looking for the best of the best company to enroll yourself in, you are in the right place. Steve and his team namely Lexi, Tim, Shannon and Tyler are very talented in what they do and they have a lot of patience in explaining things and also they do it in a way that's easier to understand.

I took the wilderness first aid training and it was great! I found the teaching approach to be very hands on and practical, testing skills through scenarios and lots of wilderness tips and tricks that you might not normally see in a standard first aid course.
