Save My Breath – First Aid, CPR, & Resuscitation takes the health and safety of everyone we serve very seriously. In accordance with the measures being taken by health authorities across the country to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we will resume in-person training June 19, 2020. Until then individuals can take online courses and/or online components of blended learning courses.

To ensure the safe everyone, we require the following of all individuals who are coming for a class. We ask all individuals to:

  • wear a mask
  • Pass the COVID screen questions. For individuals who have other underlying symptoms that may be similar to symptoms of COVID, you will not be permitted into the class.
Anyone who is not able to pass screening or wear a mask will not be permitted to the class and will be asked to reschedule.

Please read below to see changes and options to our courses during COVID.

NRP Courses

Provider Status: Extensions are available until September 31st for NRP providers that are due for renewal. 

Participants can complete the online exam and the exam they have completed will be honored once they take the in person course with-in 90 days.

Red Cross First Aid & CPR Courses

All Red Cross first aid certifications expiring through June 30, 2020, will be considered valid 90 days beyond their expiry date.

Online First Aid & CPR Courses

We offers a number of online course options, which can be used to encourage training during this time. Participants looking to take a blended first aid course or first aid re-certification course in the future can take the time now to complete the online component. 

To support this option, we are offering the online component of our Standard First Aid, Emergency First Aid, and CPR courses as separate stand-alone courses. These are normally offered as part of our blended delivery programs.

The online component will issue a confirmation of completion certificate which is valid for 90 days. Completion of this online training will also appear in the user’s profile and can be verified by their employer. 

Participants will be required to complete the in-person training component within 90 days of completing the online component, after which they will be issued three-year certification. This will continue to support your learning needs.

Blended Learning First Aid & CPR Courses

The First Aid National Program Standards require the in-class component to be completed within six weeks of completion of the online component. Considering the current situation, we want to reassure participants that they will not be required to complete the online portion a second time and we will be extending the training window from six weeks to 90 days. We will provide additional information on how to prepare for the in-class session when in-classroom training resumes. 

Youth Courses

Some courses such as the Red Cross Baby-Sitting and Stay Safe Courses are being offered virtually. These courses will still have the same great content, but from the comfort of your home. Parent can register their kids online.
