I currently work in the aquatics field here in Vancouver, working as both a qualified lifeguard (NLS certified) and a Canadian Red Cross Water Safety Instructor (WSI). I would like to begin teaching Canadian Red Cross first aid and CPR courses. How do I transfer my current instructor certification to the Red Cross First Aid Instructor Program? Is there are First Aid Instructor Transfer Course?
Yes! Your Water Safety Instructor (WSI) certification would qualify you for the Canadian Red Cross First Aid and CPR / AED instructor transfer course. You would also need to be at least 18 years of age, and possess a current Standard First Aid with CPR-HCP certificate.
