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.
