UTEFR would like to thank the generous sponsors who have made this organization possible:

Engineering Society Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Engineering Alumni






University of Toronto Students’ Union


We at UTEFR believe that first aid knowledge is a right. This is why UTEFR offers free, open training workshops throughout the academic year to all members of the University of Toronto St.George community who are interested in learning and practising first aid. By keeping abreast of your training, you will be nice and ready to assist with any emergencies you may encounter. Knowing first aid saves lives.

Additionally, many workplaces and professions require employees to be certified in first aid. As part of UTEFR, you’ll be able to keep your skills sharp through our workshops or joining our Response Team.

To join our team, please fill out the form below. You’ll be put on our mailing list, and be notified about upcoming events and workshops through email.

 Free First Aid Workshops

Free training workshops are held every-other week, and are open to the whole UTSG community!  Our glorious Training Director Kaylee will focus on a different topic upon each session, so it is well worth attending! No need to pre-register, just drop by!

Workshops are suitable for all. If you are new to first aid you can be introduced to the fundamentals of different topics. If you are experienced, it is a good way to keep your knowledge and skills fresh. Plus you get to meet and hang out with other people who also like to help others.

To participate, please sign up for our mailing list here to be informed of the time and location of the next one! Locations of workshops are subject to room availability.

First Aid Courses

UTEFR does not offer First Aid courses at this time.

If you are looking to get certified in Standard First Aid and CPR, we recommend our friends at the UofT First Aid Society, who regularly offer SFA courses at significantly discounted rates throughout the year!

The UofT First Aid Society is a non-profit training partner of the Canadian Red Cross and 100% of their net proceeds are donated to charitable causes! Last year over $8000 were donated to a variety of charities!
