“After taking first aid for over 15 years, I can honestly say that Life Start delivers a fantastic experience. Managers actually look forward to their training. Courses are informative, interactive and unbelievably fun.  They figured out how to put their personal touch into the virtual training too, giving us the ability to train throughout the pandemic.  I recommend Life Start to everyone.”

“Part of the changes of 2020 was classrooms migrating to online ho-hum learning. Five minutes into the Life Start refresher, I knew it wasn’t just another e-learning. It was interactive and fun in a way that only Khryspn can deliver. It was entertaining, informative. The time flew by. I found myself at the computer giggling, wondering why I had put this off.”

“Thank you for such a great course. You set a new standard on how courses should be done from now on. I can’t wait to see the new videos next time. It was informative, engaging, and best of all, I could do it at my own leisure from the comfort of home. Thank you for all your help, all feedback was positive from our group and everyone enjoyed your teaching style and humor to keep it interesting!”

“The best First Aid & Safety Training in New Brunswick! They are so knowledgeable and have the best equipment. I first met Khryspn at a safety conference, you could tell this was her passion. We’ve used Life Start to train 100+ employees. Every class we hear the same thing: "Best First Aid Course Ever" - My staff look forward to training and ask for Life Start by name. 5 stars all day long!”

“This was one of the best online courses I have done. The actor(s) kept me focused on the subject and on the material. All material covered was informative and cover the course material well. The in person practical section was great as well. I am still wondering why people need a banana hammock.”

Terry Jordan

“I’ve taken many courses over the years, I’m a first aid instructor myself. I like the blended aspect where you can do a lot via e-learning and it was simple and practical. Even with all the restrictions and complications COVID brings, the online and classroom instruction was really well done. Engaging and thorough. Highly recommend this course to others!”

“Really enjoyed the videos and being able to work at my own pace, as I own my own business and it is hard to get workers for 2 full days. Khryspn is a very good instructor and makes learning fun and interesting!! OH and I would have to say Marissa would be my favorite, especially with the nose bleed scenario.”

Denise Whittier

“The online classes were clear and concise and I was able to do it all on my own time. The hands-on learning was also a breeze, I'll definitely be doing this again for my refresher! Thank you!”

“By far the best First Aid/CPR class I’ve ever taken. Khryspn is so knowledgeable about stats and regulations.  She’s passionate about helping people and makes sure we have the knowledge we need to feel comfortable providing first aid.  I highly recommend anyone to take this class. I know if there’s anyone from our team that requires training I’ll be sending them to you.”

How to Avoid Injuries During Summer Workouts

There is something about summer that makes us all want to be more active, especially after two long years of limiting our activities with friends and family. Finally, we can bike, hike, or try other outdoor activities with friends. Let's focus a little less on first aid for injuries and talk about how to best prevent and avoid injuries during this summer's workouts. With fun on our minds, we must remember to take care of ourselves and ensure we're not pushing our bodies too much, or our summer activities can quickly come to a screeching halt!

Creating the Essential Summer First Aid Kit

The summer season is here!!! We know we should all have a 'winter kit' that we keep in the car but have you ever considered having a 'summer kit'? As we often hear, it's better to be safe than sorry. Here are our top essentials to help prevent common injuries when out on day trips or even while away on vacation this summer. The most common ailments during the summer months are heatstroke, sunburn, cuts, eye injuries, fractures (these are very common considering wet tiles and pools!), dehydration, and allergies.

Proof that CPR can help Save a Life – Are you confident in your ability?

I can’t even count the number of times participants have shown up to one of my classes utterly confused with what they believe are ever-changing CPR guidelines. They’ll ask how many compressions versus breaths they’re supposed to do or if they are even supposed to breathe in people anymore. Consistent information straight across the board is vital to saving lives. I absolutely love the news article from CNN that we linked at the end of the blog, which states that a teenage girl saved her best friend’s life the day after she took a CPR training class. She remembered 30 compressions and 2 breaths and put her training into action.
