Standard First Aid and CPR-C Certifications

*As of July 6, 2023, registrants with full or limited registration are required to hold current and valid Standard First Aid with Level C cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR-C) certifications under the Bylaws Section 48(1)(d). Student registrants and non-practicing registrants are not subject to this requirement unless they apply to become full registrants.

The Quality Assurance Committee has specified the following Standard First Aid and CPR-C certifications as acceptable to fulfill this requirement:

Certifications equivalent or exceeding the certification courses listed above are acceptable. For example, St. John Ambulance offers a “CPR-BLS & AED” course specific for healthcare workers and is considered equivalent in certification level with the regular “CPR-C & AED” course.  Both courses can satisfy the CPR-C certification registration requirement in the Bylaws.

In general, courses that are titled “Emergency First Aid” are at a lower certification level than the “Standard First Aid” courses; and hence DO NOT satisfy the Standard First-Aid registration requirement in the Bylaws.

*Please note: During annual registration renewal, all current and new registrants with full or limited registration must comply and report that they have met this requirement by March 31, 2024.
