Course is designed to recertify participants’ Lifesaving Standard First Aid with CPR-C and AED. Your original certification or last full-cert SFA qualification cannot be expired and it must be from the Lifesaving Society. If your LSS SFA is expired (more than 3 years from the initial certification date), candidates must do a 2-day Full-cert SFA course. Note: Those who have SFA certifications from the Red Cross, St. John’s Ambulance, Canadian Ski Patrol or a Paramedic Service, CAN NOT recertify in this course. This is for Lifesaving Society SFA recertification ONLY. ** Proof of your last LSS SFA certification is required. This is a RECERT course **

Recertification (from LSS website): Current Standard First Aid (SFA) award holders may recertify their Lifesaving Society SFA certification just once on a Lifesaving Society SFA Recertification Course not more than 3 years from the Standard First Aid date of issue. To renew SFA certifications subsequently, award holders must repeat the full SFA Course. Thereafter, individuals may renew by alternating re-certifications and original courses.

Holders of Standard First Aid certificates from other agencies may not recertify their certificate on a Lifesaving Society recertification course. They may recertify only with the original certifying agency.

Note: Registered Carleton Students receive a 10% program-fee discount.

Like other universities in Ontario, Carleton University suspended its vaccination requirements for participation in in-person Carleton activities beginning May 1, 2022.

As of Saturday June 25 MASKS were no longer be mandatory, however we continue to strongly recommend masking when indoors, particularly if physical distancing cannot be maintained. We are aware that personal preferences regarding optional mask use will vary greatly, and we ask that we all show consideration and care for each other during this transition.

Please note that if pandemic circumstances change, the university may need to reinstate the mask requirement, daily screenings & vaccination policies. The University continues to monitor the situation and will align with evolving public health advice/government requirements.
