BCRPA requires a minimum of Emergency First Aid and CPR-A; higher levels such as Standard First Aid and CPR-C are also acceptable.
We consider First Aid & CPR valid according to the expiry date listed on the certificate; if no expiry date is listed, we will accept it as current for 2 years from the date of issue. Depending on your employer or facility, they may require higher levels or a more frequent re-certification.
First Aid/CPR must come from the following organizations, or from companies that are authorized by them to provide certifications for example:
- Red Cross
- St. John’s Ambulance
- Canadian Ski Patrol
- Lifesaving Society, or
- Heart and Stroke Foundation.
- All courses must be done in-person; online training will not be accepted.
