When people become a Canadian Red Cross First Aid & CPR/AED instructor they receive 3 year certification from the Canadian Red Cross.
Prior to the expiry of their instructor certification each instructor must attend an 8 hour Canadian Red Cross first aid instructor recertification course (recert) to re-certify their instructor certification.
The Canadian Red Cross First Aid and CPR/AED instructor recertification course (recert) is divided into 3 parts:
- Skills testing session: This session ensures the instructor’s First Aid and CPR skills are still correct and of a high standard, and consistent with the Canadian Red Cross First Aid program.
- Information update session: This section provides the instructor with any new information required to teach first aid and cpr courses (i.e. changes within the Red Cross, program changes, legislative changes, etc).
- Professional development session: Every 3 years the professional development session is changed, ensuring that the instructor receives new pro-d every time they attend a recertification course.
Completion of a Canadian Red Cross First Aid and CPR/AED instructor recertification course re-certifies an instructor’s certification for 3 more years.
The cost for the Canadian Red Cross First Aid and CPR/AED instructor recertification (recert) course is $165. This includes all course materials and taxes.
