The Canadian Red Cross Wilderness Instructor Recertification Spoke is part of the recertification process for the Wilderness 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 Wilderness Instructor Recertification Spoke will only recertify your Wilderness Instructor (RFAI, WFAI, or WFRI) certificate.
Every instructor recertifying must have taught a minimum of 3 Canadian Red Cross courses during their three-year certification period.
Virtual materials will be included.

I felt Nathan made the class fun, kept our attention and took time to explain when someone didn’t understand. The class covered all basic emerg. procedures but didn’t overwhelm.
Great sense of humour made learning fun! Thanks for acknowledging our skill level and working from there.
Mike was an incredibly good instructor. He was engaging, clear and informative. He answered all questions and allowed us time to learn anything not strictly covered in the course. Resources were useful and interesting.
"Real life" scenarios were good for challenging my knowledge. Good pacing - fairly quick, but not rushed.
Nathan was super awesome and made the somewhat tedious information as fun as possible. Very clear and helpful.
"The course was very simple and the instructor was super awesome. I actually learned more than I expected, thank you Jason."
Love this company! I always use Alert to recertify and tell my coworkers.
This was the most enjoyable first aid class I have taken. Very “hands on” and much more informative than just reading a book.
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!
Gary used relevant examples & situations to teach us proper CPR. He is a great instructor! I like how we learned both adult and baby CPR and it was very hands on.
