Instructor Development

First Aid Instructor Course

Step 1: check prerequisites

A current CRC First Aid Program Instructor certification (required upon registration)
Has taught a minimum of three Canadian Red Cross First Aid Program courses during the three-year certification period.
One course must have been taught in each Instructor designation seeking recertification (to the highest level of certification with each program area).

Courses which were taught in combination (example: Standard First Aid and CPR C) do not count as separate courses for the purpose of recertification prerequisites.

Step 2: Complete Pre-Course Assignment

Instructor Trainer will email a detailed pre-course assignment to each Instructor.
Instructors must come to the recertification course prepared and have a very strong skills and knowledge base. Please study the Comprehensive Guide for First Aid CPR and PLEASE review all skills which can be found on the Boulevard online.
Failure to comply with these items will result as “non-complete” and requires the Instructor to re-attend another recertification course.
