For current Red Cross instructors who wish to recertify their instructor certification and who have already completed the Instructor Recertiication Hub.
The Canadian Red Cross First Aid & CPR Instructor Recertification Spoke is part of the recertification process for the First Aid & CPR Instructor discipline. The Instructor Recertification Hub must be taken as well 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 First Aid & CPR Instructor Recertification Spoke will only recertify your First Aid & CPR Instructor certificate.
Every instructor recertifying must have taught a minimum of 3 Canadian Red Cross courses during their three-year certification period, and at least one needs to be a Standard First Aid & CPR Level C course.
In order to recertify your instructor certification, you must meet the following prerequisites:
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.
