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.
