Re: Ontario Correctional Services

For the members waiting on an offer I suggest getting your W.S.I.B. Approved Emergency First Aid, C.P.R, A.E.D. This will be needed after you receive the offer and will be needed to move forward, will save you sometime in the future.

Good Luck any questions feel free to DM me
