Advanced First Aid/EMR Renewal
Red Cross Advanced First Aid/EMR Renewal Course
To minimize face-to-face time in the classroom the days will be reduced to 5-hour chunks over 3 weeks. Maximum class sizes (to meet social distancing directives) will be up to 12 participants per class. Please read how we commit to keeping you safe: Breath for Life’s commitment to Keeping you Safe.
Please note: During this time we reserve the right to postpone a class if minimum registrations are not reached (4 participants).
As per OHS: First Aid/CPR certifications that expire between March 1, 2020 and March 1, 2021 can attend a recertification course as long as this is completed by March 31, 2021. Participants are required to hold onto their expired certificates as proof and OHS officers have flexibility to accept expired certificates.
The Canadian Red Cross, Advanced First Aid Renewal Course, is approved by Workplace Health and Safety (WHS or OHS) in Alberta under the Canadian Red Cross and is equivalent to an OFA 3 in British Columbia. This course also meets the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Standard Z1210-17 – Advanced. This renewal reviews traumatic injuries and medical illnesses within the context of the primary and secondary survey. A focus on establishing an airway, ventilating, performing CPR and applying an AED, will be studied and practiced along with musculoskeletal and soft tissue injury management. Other learning opportunities are available on an as needed basis.
