First Aid and CPR AED C - Emergency or Standard - Online Only (Interim Certificate for COVID-19)
Effective August 8, Product is no longer available as a standalone course, as in class sessions have resumed. If you are interested in an online blended delivery, please check available dates under Standard First Aid and Emergency First Aid.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Alberta Occupational Health & Safety has made some adjustments to workplace first aid certifications. Normally, online-only courses are not accepted by Alberta OHS for workplace first aid - in-class skills sessions are required. However, there is a temporary provision for online training as an interim certification, with the skills being completed at a later date.
How will this work?
Step One - register for and complete the online course here, for either Emergency First Aid or Standard First Aid. You will receive an interim 90-day certificate.
Step Two - register for and complete the in-class skills session for the course level you have selected at https://aurora-training-corp.myshopify.com/products/first-aid-cpr-in-class-skills-component-after-completing-online-course . The skills must be completed within 90 days of the online course. Then you will receive your full 3-year certificate.
What about if the pandemic lasts longer than 90 days? At this time we have no further information from Alberta OHS regarding this; we will update as appllicable.
In-class skills session dates are now available and you can register at https://aurora-training-corp.myshopify.com/products/first-aid-cpr-in-class-skills-component-after-completing-online-course .
The online course is non refundable - final sale.
Will my employer accept the interim certificate?
Alberta OHS has released a communication confirming the interim certificate is acceptable but the final decision is with employers. Your employer is welcome to contact us to confirm.
