Online First Aid, CPR, and Basic Life Support Courses

All online First Aid, CPR, and Basic Life Support courses meet Alberta Occupational Health & Safety first aid workplace legislation.

Alberta Occupational Health & Safety has determined that participants who complete Part 1: Online Learning can use their certificate as a workplace-approved and recognized interim certification for 90 days without attending Part 2: Classroom Learning.

Participants will be required to compete the in-person classroom training within 90 days, or when the Covid-19 situation makes it safe to do so.

Online First Aid & CPR courses meet the Canadian Red Cross training standards

Online Basic Life Support courses meet the Heart & Stroke Foundation training standards.

  • All of the online First Aid, CPR, and BLS courses meet legislative requirements.
  • During the Covid-19 closures, participants who complete Part 1: Online Learning will receive a workplace-approved certification for 90 days without attending Part 2: Classroom Learning.
  • Complete Part 1: Online Learning at your own pace at home, then complete Part 2: Classroom Learning once in-person classes become available.
  • The online courses have been designed to be user friendly, but a general knowledge of computers is recommended.
  • BC Workplace Endorsement is available for Online Emergency First Aid and Online Standard First Aid.

Online First Aid Course Details

When you register for an online course, you will receive an email giving you access to the Canadian Red Cross’s online learning portal. Once you complete your online learning, you will receive proof of completion which you can access online or print out. During Covid-19, this certificate of completion is valid for workplace first aid requirements for 90 days, which may be extended depending on how the situation develops.

Online courses require the same total learning time, but they allow you to proceed at your own pace, and during Covid-19 closures allow you to receive workplace certification without attending in-class training.

Online recertification courses are also available! Current certificates have had their expiry dates extended by 90 days, but online recertification courses are available for those whose expiry dates are approaching.
