Coronavirus Position Statement and Updates

Red Cross Standard First Aid BLS Renewal Course

We have come to realize that our courses are essential for some individuals to meet workplace and/or professional association requirements.With the support of our governing bodies and the fact that Breath for Life has and is following and exceeding the requirements by Public Health some classes dates have been re-opened. Maximum class sizes (to meet and exceed social distancing directives) are 10 participants per class. During this uncertain time we reserve the right to postpone a class if minimum numbers are not met (8 participants). You will receive and email to inform you if the class will be running. 

  • Please note: Students will not be in pairs or groups and we have been able to successfully teach all skills required without any person-to-person contact. Each student will use their own sterilized equipment (Adult mannequin, Baby mannequin, AED and BVMs) and will be provided a pair of gloves. Sanitation during and after the classes of all equipment and commonly touched surfaces (including bathrooms) will be performed. 
  • To minimize in-class time a Q+A type homework will be emailed ahead of time to be completed. In-class time will be 3-4 hours reviewing skills. 
  • Please note: You cannot attend the class if you are:
    1) Self-isolating or have been in known contact with someone with the virus
    2) You have traveled in the past 3 weeks (you should be self-isolating)
    3) You have any symptoms of illness (sore throat, fever…)

The Standard First Aid BLS Renewal Course (previously CPR-HCP) reviews important first aid principles as well as CPR and AED skills. This one day Canadian Red Cross course is different from the lay provider Standard First Aid course in that there is a focus on Healthcare Provider (BLS) skill sets. CPR training includes bag-valve-mask use, pulse checks and the various CPR ratios.
