Standard First Aid with CPR C/AED - Online/In Class

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.


The following items are covered in this Standard First Aid with CPR C/AED - Online/In Class class:

  • The Red Cross

Benefits of Red Cross Blended Learning...
Blended learning makes it easier to schedule employee training while ensuring business continuity. Employees complete the online portion of the training on their own time and at their own pace. This could be done over a period of weeks with employees having to take only an hour here or there to complete this component of the course. It can be accommodated into the busiest of schedules. This option is a more personalized way to learn first aid as employees can focus on areas where they feel they need more time.

Blended learning delivery can save more than eight hours in business downtime per employee. Attending the one-day, in-classroom session and passing the knowledge evaluation completes the requirements of the course and provides your employees with the required certification.

Course Features Video: the course incorporates video excerpts to demonstrate first aid skills Audio: curriculum is fully audio-enabled to allow participants to listen to the course like an audio book.

Participants must attend and participate in 100% of the courseRed 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.
