The CPR level “C” recertification course is designed for candidates looking to renew their previous CPR “C” and AED certifications. This course will focus on areas and topics in which candidates need improvement. Candidates will also renew all the skills learned in the original certification course as well as any new changes brought in by the American Heart Association or ILCOR. The course will include adult, child, and infant CPR.
Pre-requisites for Re-Certification:
Before registering for a CPR level “C” Re-Certification course candidates must meet several requirements. The following is a list of prerequisites for candidates wanting to take a re-cert course:
1. To be eligible for a CPR “C” re-certification course candidates must have a previous CPR level “C” and AED certification card, or higher, from a credible provider. Participants in Ontario must have received the previous award from a workplace-approved provider for it to be eligible for renewal. Check below for a list of credible providers (applicable to provinces outside of Ontario).
Credible Providers include:
- Lifesaving Society
- St Mark James Training
- St. Johns Ambulance
- Heart & Stroke Foundation
- SAFE First Aid.
2. the Previous certificate must be awarded within Canada to be eligible for a re-certification course. Certification awarded by a credible provider outside of Canada must receive approval from a Canadian equivalent provider (ex: St Mark James) before a candidate can meet the pre-requisite requirements for this course. We can not issue a re-certification card to an international certificate with approval from its Canadian counterpart.
3. Candidates must have taken a full course or a re-certification course within the past 3 years. If it has been more than 3 years since the past course candidates must re-take the full/original course.
If candidates do not meet all of the previously mentioned re-certification requirements they are not eligible for a CPR level “C” re-certification.
*Candidates must also bring their previous CPR manual to the renewal course.
