Red Cross re-certification courses:

The Canadian Red Cross re-certification courses are for those who already possess valid certification and need to renew their skills for employment purposes:

Why do we all need to re-certify?

Our Red Cross first aid & CPR re-certification courses are intended for those who already possess valid first aid & CPR certification from the Canadian Red Cross, but are required by their employer to re-certify on an annual basis, or for those who possess valid first aid & CPR certification that is nearing its expiry date.

Re-certification 101:

Our re-certification course is an refresher version of the traditional first aid & CPR course, summarizing the core training of the first aid & CPR training that was already taught to you in the past.  It's sole purpose is to re-immerse you with the core first aid & CPR training in order for people to memorize the course curriculum by the means of repetition.  Although your current first aid & CPR certification has not yet expired, your employer may require you to attend a re-certification course on an annual basis in order to refresh your first aid skills.

Each student will be re-immersed in a training curriculum that will teach students the following:

  • How to recognize, prevent, and respond to cardiovascular emergencies such as choking, airway blockage, etc.
  • Disease transmission prevention methods and techniques.
  • Proper use of an automated external defibrillator (AED).

What this course will provide you:

  • Comprehensive, hands on training by certified first aid instructors by the Canadian Red Cross.
  • A Canadian Red Cross First Aid & CPR manual: A 33 page booklet of information, full colour illustrations, charts, glossary, etc.
  • One wallet sized certification card upon successful completion (valid for 3 years).
