New Wilderness First Aid Certification Changes for 2023
Effective 1 March 2023, changes mandated by Alberta Workplace Health and Safety have be implemented, altering our range of Wilderness First Aid Programs.
Workplace Certification: Specialty first aid programs will no longer be approved by Alberta Workplace Health and Safety. All courses will be shifting to include an Intermediate (Standard) First Aid certification with CPR for workplace recognition in addition to the Wilderness certification.
Mixed Delivery: Most courses now include a portion of online self-study in advance of the classroom days, included in the course length.
New Titles: Our 24-, 40-, and 80-hour courses will be offered in a similar format, but with new names to reflect the curriculum update and industry standard. If you are taking a recertification course, look for the course of equivalent length, or us at email email@example.com with any questions about selecting the correct updated course.
Recertification: The 24-hour Remote First Aid course no longer has a separate recertification. As there is a lot to cover in a short time, recertification will be done by taking the full course again.
