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 45 days until they attend Part 2: Classroom Learning.

The online completion certificate expires after 45 days. Participants will be required to compete the in-person classroom training within 45 days of registering for their course.

  • Complete Part 1: Online Learning at your own pace at home, then complete Part 2: Classroom Learning within 45 days of registering.

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 within one (1) business day. If you register on a weekend, for example, you will receive access to the online learning on the following Monday or the following business day if it is a holiday weekend. Once you complete your online learning, you will receive proof of completion which you can access online or print out. This certificate of completion is valid for 45 days. Classroom learning must be completed within those 45 days.

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.
