First Aid Training

Please note we will be suspending First Aid training for the next while due to the Covid-19 situation. We look forward to assisting you with your training needs after all this is over below is a statement from Alberta Occupational Health and Safety with regards to Certificate extensions.

Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety Program is flexible concerning certificate expirations for workplace first aid.  Expiration dates for health care providers holding standard or emergency workplace first aid certifications are extended immediately until further notice. 

Other first aiders who are unable to recertify their training prior to certificate expiry will have their certificate expirations extended to allow them to recertify at a later opportunity. 

Examples of circumstances that may require individuals to recertify at a later opportunity include but are not limited to: 

  • they are ill, 
  • they have been asked to self-isolate, 
  • they are over the age of 50, 
  • they have a medical condition that would pre-dispose to complications of COVID-19 infection, 
  • they would need to travel to access a training course, or 
  • they are unable to access a training course due to reduced availability of training courses or child care commitments. 

Certificate holders will not be required to provide documentation to OHS that one of the above conditions applies, but must keep their workplace first aid certificate as proof of certification, even if the expiry date has passed (applies to certificates with expiry dates on or after March 17, 2020). OHS officers will have flexibility in accepting expired workplace first aid, certificates as proof of current certification.

Although the bulletin does not specify how long the extension should be, Apex suggests communicating to your customers and students that the period is currently 4 months.  We may revise this number if the situation warrants.
