Re-Certification Courses

Ottawa First Aid proudly offers workplace approved first aid and/or CPR re-certification courses. All courses include training and re-certification in the use of automated external defibrillators (AED). These courses are designed for candidates that need to renew expiring certificates. Renewal courses are cheaper and shorter than the original course and focus on skills and knowledge areas in which candidates need improvement. Once candidates complete the workplace approved re-cert course they will receive a certificate (depending on your re-cert course) that meets many workplace and academic standards and is valid for 3 years. Candidates may be required to renew certification at a earlier date based on employer or school policy. Not all first aid and CPR certificates have re-certification courses. If your certification course is not listed here you will have to re-take the original / full course to renew certification.
