WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE RED CROSS AND HEART AND STROKE CERTIFICATIONS?
As you see from the course descriptions, the content is very similar and both organizations are approved for workplaces. The difference is how the courses are delivered. The Canadian Red Cross courses are instructor lead with a learning centered approached. The Heart and Stroke courses are either Video or Power Point lead with the Instructor facilitation. Both are excellent courses and you will have lots of practice time with skills in both. Pick the one that meets your learning style or the one that your employer or educational institution has specifically requested you to attend.

For the full course schedule please use the 'View All Upcoming Dates' button to the right of the picture at the top of the page. This will give you the schedule for the next 3 months or more! Don't have time to take 2 days off work to complete a first aid class? Do half on line and then come in for a one day class instead.... This Red Cross blended learning first aid program is a combination of in-class, face-to-face instruction with online instruction. Typically, theory and information are conveyed to the participants outside of the classroom through an online component. This allows for the in-class component to concentrate on skills development and the application of theory. For the Red Cross first aid courses, a self-paced, online component is completed first, followed by an in-class skills session with a Red Cross First Aid Instructor. Red Cross Electronic Certifications notice: The Canadian Red Cross has moved to electronic certifications as of Oct 2, 2017 for its First Aid and CPR programs. First Aid and CPR participants will have access to electronic manuals as well as being provided in class manuals. The Canadian Red Cross is the “certifying body” that issues the certifications. This change will also maintain the integrity of the certifications, and make it easier for participants to maintain a record of all the training that they do with the Red Cross as well as provide employers the ability to “verify certifications” of all participants completing a Red Cross First Aid and CPR Program after Oct 2, 2017 using the participants last name and unique certification identifier. AHASTI will require a unique email address upon registration or at the time of the course for each student in these programs to ensure that the certifications and course manuals are available and accessible to each student. Employers will not have access to these certifications. Employees will be required to forward a copy to employers upon request. As certifications will not be issued at the time of completion, AHASTI will strive to have all issued within 72 hrs of completion of the training. AHASTI will only be issuing temporary certifications to candidates that require a document within that time period.
