Canadian Red Cross core First Aid & CPR courses offer lifesaving first aid
skills. All courses cover cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for adults,
children, and babies (according to the level of CPR included). Courses meet
legislation requirements for provincial/territorial worker safety and insurance
boards. Courses offer skills for individuals needing training for the
workplace or for those interested in having first aid skills so they can
respond to emergencies at home.
The blended program requires students to complete the online theory component prior to the skills assessment with the instructor. The online component can be completed at home, and the skills assessment must be booked within two weeks of completion of the online component.
