The blended emergency first aid course covers the basic skills necessary to deal with time priority emergencies. Students will complete the theory portion online and the practical portion in class. The Blended RC Emergency First Aid course is NOT recognized by WorkSafe BC as a valid equivalent certification for the Occupational First Aid Level 1. It includes initial assessment, respiratory distress, CPR, AED, bleeding, unconsciousness, shock, poisons, and secondary assessment. Certification is by the Red Cross and is valid for a period of three years, but yearly recertification in CPR Level C is recommended.
