NLS Lifeguard or Red Cross Water Safety Instructor (WSI) to Red Cross First Aid Instructor

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.

COVID-19 Update:

Priority Care First Aid halted all in person course delivery on March 17th, following guidance from the Provincial Health Officer.  We wish to send our sincere thanks to all of our new and long term clients for their understanding during these unprecedented times, and are excited to announce that we are now able to return to our high quality EMS and instructor development programs starting July 1st!

Our classes will be much smaller in size for now, and will follow new guidance from WorkSafe BC and the Red Cross on maintaining a safe learning environment.

In the meantime: please continue to take steps to keep yourself, your family and your community safe.  We look forward to working with you all very soon!

Sincerely,

Priority Care First Aid
