For current Red Cross Professional Responder Instructors (BLSI, FRI, EMRI) who wish to recertify their instructor certification and who have already completed the Instructor Recertification Hub.

The Canadian Red Cross Professional Responder Instructor Recertification Spoke is part of the recertification process for the Professional Responder Discipline. 

The Instructor Recertification Hub must be taken first to complete the recertification process.

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 sepearately (First Aid & CPR Instructor, Wilderness & Remote First Aid Instrucotr and Professional Responder Instructor).

Completing the Instructor Recertification Hub and this Professional Responder Instructor Recertification Spoke will only recertify your Professional Responder Instructor (BLSI, FRI or EMRI) certificate.

Every instructor recertifying must have taught a minimum of 3 Canadian Red Cross courses during their three-year certification period.

Full Course Length 4 hours

Course Details

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

  • A current CRC First Aid Program Instructor certification,
  • Have taught a minimum of three Canadian Red Cross First Aid Program courses during the three-year certification period (including at least one Standard First Aid & CPR Level C)
  • The Instructor Recertification Hub needs to be taken before the Discipline-Specific Spoke courses.

Please submit teaching records through MyRC. 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.

I have always done St. John Ambulance first aid training. This course was taught differently but was more effective due to more hands on training. I will definitely return to Alert First Aid for my re-certification. Thank you!!
