Hourly Rate for Safe Management & First Aid Training

As of April 1, 2017 EAFWR employees who provide direct support (FamilyHome Providers, Direct Support People, etc.) will be paid an hourly rate of $15.42 via direct deposit for completing the following training:

  1. Crisis Prevention by Safe Management: applies to 12-hour certification and 6-hour re-certification
  1. First Aid/CPR – Level C: applies to EAFWR employees who provide direct support (FamilyHome Providers, Direct Support People, etc.) and who need to renew their certification

Payment for training is not limited to those who are mandated by Quality Assurance Measures [QAM] to attend. EAFWR will provide the same hourly rate to EAFWR employees (FamilyHome Providers, Direct Support People, etc.) who complete training.

You may be wondering where the Inclusion Workshop fits into EAFWR’s plan to pay support people for training. Like initial First Aid/CPR training, the Inclusion Workshop is considered a screening element that new hires agree to as a requirement for employment and is therefore not financially compensated.

If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Martin, Training and Organizational Development Coordinator, at smartin@eafwr.on.ca or 519 741-0190 ext. 238.
