Were you in the US, that "paying for first aid training" thing would absolutely be illegal. I dunno much of anything about Canadian labor law, however.

Maybe. If it's "if you're the first person to get first aid training you get additional job security and a bump in pay" that's one thing. If it's "you there, take this course or you're fired" that's something else.

I was referring to making it mandatory, rather than doing it on your own in exchange for an incentive.

Of course. Don't know what options AkaiKitsune had there.

I'd love something like that but TBH I don't think I could bring myself to feed it ...

We once had an Oscar (type of fish) and my poor grandmother, who babysat us daily while Mom was at work, had the unenviable job of feeding it ... worms.

Then there was the preying mantis my mom's father caught for us, and poor mom ended up being the one to feed IT ...

Cats and kibble are fine with me.

Like my friend bringing home the feeder mice for his snake...

Some friends of mine once had fish that preferred live food. "Feeder guppies." It was ... disturbing to watch.

My mother (mid 30s) put a baby guppy in a friend's glass of water while he was telling stories to the group... He thought they were hanging on every word, waiting attentively whenever he paused for a sip...

... they were watching the guppy swim away ...

... he got to the last drop, looked, said, "There's a speck of dirt in here." and dumped it in the sink.

So Mom told him there were two.

Had numerous of our chickens and guineas 'volunteered' to feed the pair of eagles nesting in our lower pasture woods. Handsome birds.
