  • All Red Cross instructor updates (if applicable) must be completed prior to course registration. If you do not know what this means, please discuss this with your Red Cross regional representative;

New Model for Instructor recertification: Virtual Delivery

Instructors will recertify each of their certifications separately (First Aid Instructor (CORE), First Responder Instructor, Wilderness & Remote First Aid Instructor, etc.). This new model respects the difference in skills needed and target audiences for each discipline by completing both a Recertification HUB and a Discipline Specific Component.

  • Each discipline will attend a 4-hour Instructor Recertification Hub which focuses on course fundamentals common to each discipline.
  • Each discipline will also attend a 4-hour discipline-specific component which will focus on skills and scenarios for the specific audience to which instructors are teaching skills.
  • The Virtual Instructor Recertification is facilitated by an experienced Canadian Red Cross Instructor trainer.
  • 1-2 weeks prior to your course dates you will receive an email with the link to join the session and any other pre-course paperwork and details.
  • Please Note: Breath for Life does not offer the Professional Responder and Wilderness Instructor Discipline Specific Component.
