RC Emergency First Aid with CPR/AED Level C

Emergency First Aid with CPR/AED Level C is an 8 hour program developed by the Canadian Red Cross.  This course focuses on the most common and critical life-threatening situations one may encounter. It provides basic first aid knowledge to care for adults, children and infants in case of an emergency. In order to be successful, candidates must demonstrate practical skill competency, achieve a minimum of 75% on a multiple-choice exam and attend the full course.  Upon successful completion of the course participants will receive a Canadian Red Cross CPR “C” & AED certificate that is valid for three years.  

This course is now recognized by WorkSafe BC as equivalent to an OFA Level 1.
