The Academy for First Aid and Safety is proud to announce an exciting change from the way the Canadian Red Cross issues its certifications:
In October 2017, The Academy for First Aid and Safety will transition from a physical wallet card based certification to a digital certification. Each certification will have a unique serial number in which the student can verify its validity. Furthermore, the student would not need to pay for a replacement card anymore since it is in digital format and is stored on the student’s phone, computer, and the Canadian Red Cross’ mobile app.
In order to remain in compliant with Regulation 1101 of the Workplace Safety Insurance Act with keeping proper records of all certifications, our academy (who is in partnership with the Canadian Red Cross Society) will implement these changes. This will be a national wide change and every Canadian Red Cross training partner will undergo the same transition, regardless of which Canadian Red Cross training partner you obtain your certification from.
What will this mean for all students who take a first aid and / or CPR course from our Academy?
With the upcoming changes to the way we issue Canadian Red Cross certifications, we look forward to delivering you high quality, fun, and interactive first aid and CPR training programs in the greater Toronto area. We anticipate that these changes will simplify the way certifications are held, stored, and retrieved in the unfortunate event of it becoming lost or stolen.
