TLA Funding for Level Three First Aid Training

This is an exciting chance for TLA member companies and their employees to increase the number of Level Three First Aid attendants in the BC forest industry and be financially supported by the TLA as they do it.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The reimbursement of the OFA3 registration fee will be made to whoever paid for the course - employer or employee. However, the $1,000 of additional financial support will ONLY be paid to the employee, NOT the employer. 
 
The forest industry needs more Level Three First Aid attendants and the TLA and our members are part of the solution with this program!
