Standard First Aid with CPR/AED Level “C” is a 16-hour program developed by the Canadian Red Cross.
Standard First Aid is a comprehensive course, which provides basic first aid knowledge to care for adults, children and infants in case of an emergency. There are some variations in the courses to suit different areas of specialization and occupations. 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 Standard with 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.
