Instructor Recertification Hub

Instructor Recertification Hub

For current Red Cross Instructors who wish to recertify their instructor certification.

The Canadian Red Cross Instructor Recertification Hub is a part of the recertification process for all three Red Cross First Aid Instructor disciplines: First Aid & CPR, Wilderness & Remote First Aid, and Professional Responder, and must be taken before the recertification course in each discipline.

In July 2020, the Canadian Red Cross introduced new discipline-specific Instructor Recertification courses. An evolution to their previous model, the discipline-specific recertification courses align with the Instructor Development Program and respect the difference in skills needed and target audiences for each discipline.

In the previous model, recertifying a Professional Responder or Wilderness & Remote First Aid Instructor certification would recertify all other instructor certifications automatically.

Under this new model, instructors will need to recertify each of their certifications separately (First Aid & CPR Instructor, Wilderness & Remote First Aid Instructor, and Professional Responder Instructor).

Every instructor needs to attend a four hour Instructor Recertification Hub (this course) and the appropriate discipline-specific components. Instructors must have current Canadian Red Cross First Aid Program Instructor certification, and have taught a minimum of 3 Canadian Red Cross First Aid Program courses during their three-year certification period.

Successful completion of the Instructor Recertification Hub also recertifies your Teaching Experience Supervisor and/or Youth Leader certification (if held).

Full Course Length 4 hours

Course Details

Prerequisites

In order to recertify your instructor certification, you must meet the following prerequisites:

Please submit teaching records through MyRC. One course must have been taught in each instructor designation seeking recertification (to the highest level of certification with each program area, re-certification courses qualify). Courses which were taught in combination (example: Standard First Aid and Emergency First Aid) do not count as separate courses for the purpose of re-certification prerequisites.

For more information, please consult the CRC National Program Standards.

Great course with a lot of enthusiasm. Definitely kept me interested over 3 hours on a hot sunny day. :) The instruction was very clear and I am confident I will be able to provide appropriate 1st aid should I need it. Thanks so much!
