Our training partners proudly offer workplace-approved CPR re-certification courses. These courses are designed for candidates that need to renew expiring or previously expired CPR certificates. Renewal courses are significantly shorter and cheaper than the original full courses. Candidates who successfully complete a workplace-approved re-cert course will receive a certificate that is of equal value to the original course certificate. Certification is valid for 3 years and meets government and legislative standards for most provinces.
The following CPR certificates can be re-certified through a workplace-approved renewal course:
- CPR level “A” and AED
- CPR level “C” and AED
- CPR level “C” for health care providers, also known as CPR “HCP” and AED.
For more information about the available re-certification courses available to you select the re-cert course of your choice from the main menu.
Prerequisites For CPR Re-Certification:
In order to take a renewal course, candidates must meet 3 prerequisites. The eligibility requirements for a re-cert course in the majority of Canadian provinces are:
- Candidates must have completed a re-cert course or a full course within the past 3 years.
- Candidates must have completed a full course or a re-cert course through a credible provider. Credible providers include the Heart and Stroke Foundation, St. Johns Ambulance, St Mark James, and the Lifesaving Society. Certificates obtained through online CPR courses are not available for re-certification. Re-certification of other agencies’ certifications is not possible in Ontario.
- Candidates must have completed the previous CPR course or re-cert course through a Canadian provider. Certificates are nationally accredited but not internationally. Candidates that have received certificates outside of Canada will have to take the full course.

Candidates may be required to re-certify CPR certificates at an earlier date based on employer or school policy. Check with your employer’s school to determine if you need to re-certify prior to your certificate’s expiry date. Annual re-certification is recommended by a lot of Canadian employers.
