Red Cross First Aid Instructor Recertification Course

I am a current Canadian Red Cross First Aid and CPR/AED Instructor in Vancouver.  I am coming to the end of my three year certification.  What do I have to do to re-certify?

Prior to the end of your three year certification cycle you must attend an 8 hour Red Cross First Aid Instructor Recertification Course.

This course is broken down into three sections:

Skills Review:

All First Aid and CPR/AED skills will be reviewed to ensure consistency with the Canadian Red Cross First Aid Program.

Information Update:

New information regarding program changes, program updates, legislative changes, etc will be discussed.

Professional Development:

Each recertification cycle contains a professional development session to help grow Red Cross First Aid instructors.

COVID-19 Update:

Priority Care First Aid has now resumed in class training.  As emergency health care providers we take our student’s safety very seriously, so all classes will be delivered in accordance with advice from the Provincial Health Officer, WorkSafe BC and the Canadian Red Cross.  

Some steps we are taking include:

 1) All students must arrive at the school with an appropriate face mask for times where social distancing is not possible.  

2) All students will complete a COVID-19 screening prior to entering the facility.  

3) Class size has been reduced to 9 students per class only, and seating has been spread out to allow for social distancing.  

4) Hand sanitizer will be available in all classroom locations, and a strict facility cleaning schedule will be followed.  

5) First Responder and EMR students must purchase their own stethoscopes (this can be done through a variety of vendors… please contact us if you require assistance).  

6) Classroom activities will be modified, where allowable, to reduce direct student contact.

7) Face shields and gloves will be worn, in addition to face masks, when students are working in direct contact.  These practices will follow current field practice used by paramedics and other emergency health care providers.

We look forward to seeing you back in the classroom.  In the meantime, please continue to take steps to keep yourself, your family and your community safe!

Sincerely,

Priority Care First Aid
