Recertification Course Information

Requirements to Qualify (all must be met):

Is your current certificate issued by the Canadian Red Cross?
First Aid 4U is a Canadian Red Cross Training Partner. Current WSIB regulations mandate that we are not able to recertify other providers certificates (St. John’s Ambulance for example).

Do you have a current, valid Canadian Red Cross Certificate In either Standard First Aid, or CPR?
Your Certificate must be issued by the Canadian Red Cross and not be expired by the time you attend a course (meaning if your certificate was issued on December 15th, 2018, you will be eligible to attend recertification up to December 14th, 2021).  Recertification is only valid in Ontario under WSIB Regulations; for Standard First Aid, or CPR. Emergency First Aid is not eligible for Recertification (if you require Emergency First Aid click HERE to register!).

Did you attend a full class last time you were certified?
Your certificate should state “Your Name – Is Certified In …” as you are only eligible to recertify a full certificate. If your certificate states “Your Name is Recertified in …” you will not be eligible for recertification. ****Please note this criteria is only for Standard First Aid. CPR courses by themselves can be recertified anytime****


Additional Information:

Once registered, you will be required to send in a copy of your current certificate for validation.
You will be prompted after registration to submit a copy of your current certificate to our head office for validation. This ensures that you are able to attend the course without issue and make it easier for your during check in as you will not be required to bring a hardcopy of your certificate if we pre-verify your booking.
