First Aid Interim Certificate | First Aid Care
About this Course
- The Online Blended Learning format allows you to do the theory online, while the practical segment is done in-class. The in-class bit will start to roll out once the Province clears in-class First Aid Training. Of course, COVID-19 precautions will be in effect — meaning, that all participants will be required to wear gloves and masks — all of which will be supplied by First Aid Care. The difference between the Blended L Learning format (BLF) and the First Aid Interim Certificate (FAIC) is clear: The Preliminary Certificate that is issued after the Blended Learning Online portion is completed, isn’t recognized by WSIB, while the FAIC, is. So we strongly recommend that enroll in the FAIC course, instead, as it gives you a CPR Level C certificate that you can take along to schools and workplaces. In addition, the Online CPR Level C demonstrates due diligence in that you plan to complete the course once the restrictions are lifted.
- The Blended Learning CPR Level C format, like the FAIC, has six (6) modules. A short quiz will take you from one module to the next. You’ll need a minimum of 80% in the quiz to proceed to the next module. You can take the quiz as many times as needed to achieve the required 80%.
- Once you’re ready, print the Preliminary Certificate (PC) after you have completed the theory. Keep in mind that the PC is not your certification; it merely demonstrates that you’ve completed the online component of the course and needs to be brought to the practical session for the instructor to add to your profile with Red Cross.
