First Aid and CPR courses and refreshers are offered regularly at UPEI. It is important to have employees trained in First Aid/CPR at each building. In order to be aware of who is trained in your building or area, please refer to the list of employees trained in First Aid and CPR and the list of UPEI employees trained in TDG.  Also, please know the location of the nearest First Aid kit in your area.


All UPEI faculty, staff and graduate students are required to complete online Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) Orientation training.

Online WHMIS Refresher Training is required to be taken two years after the orientation training has been completed as well as every two years afterwards.

Supervisors and managers are also required to take the WHMIS Supervisory Training.

For WHMIS training login information, please contact Kathryn Harrison by email at
