Emergency First Aid and CPR Level C (Blended)

An interactive basic Red Cross first aid course that covers life-threatening emergencies at home or at work through online and in-person delivery.

The Canadian Red Cross Emergency First Aid & CPR Level C Blended course is a hands-on basic first aid course that covers lifesaving first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills through a combination of online self-paced learning and in-class skills with one of our outstanding instructors. You'll learn how to react and respond to life-threatening emergencies including choking, life-threatening bleeding, heart attacks and strokes. This course is also recognized by WorkSafeBC as equivalent to their Occupational First Aid Level 1 program, and will certify you to be a designated Level 1 First Aid attendant.

At Alert First-Aid, we believe that people learn best if they are taught in a fun, stress-free environment. We set up our courses to include lots of hands-on, scenario-based learning so you'll leave feeling confident and empowered in your new skills.

We're doing our best to curb the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, and masks are mandatory for the duration of all our courses. You can check out the resources section to read our full COVID-19 Safety Plan.

FAQs

Can I get first aid certified online?

If you need first aid certification, you can only do PART of the course online. We offer Emergency First Aid, Standard First Aid, Marine Basic First Aid, and standalone CPR C courses in a ‘blended’ format where you are able to complete the ‘knowledge lessons’ online. This cuts the amount of time in the classroom for these courses fully in half, but it isn’t permitted to issue first aid certification unless half of your course time is spent in the classroom where an instructor can guide you through the practical skills and evaluate that you can perform them well enough to be certified.

Do online first aid courses count?

If you require first aid certification for work or for a role in the community, you can only do PART of the course online.
