What Are CPR Recertification Courses?

If you have previously received certification in CPR there will come a point when you will need to be recertified. Our courses offer Red Cross certification that is valid for 3 years. Once you complete the course the certification card will be issued on the same day. It is now easier than ever to get recertified in First Aid & CPR training Toronto, through our Heart 2 Heart courses.

Standard First Aid CPR /AED (C or HCP) Recertification

This is a one-day course that is also commonly referred to as Basic Cardiac Life Support. You can take this course if your prior certification for CPR (C or HCP) was issued during the last 3 years. You’ll need to provide proof of this when you register for the course. HCP level CPR recertification is also available for healthcare providers.

The course focuses on lifesaving skills for babies, children and adults. In this course you’ll go over CPR procedures, choking, team response, using an automated external defibrillator, the proper recovery position, response preparation and the 911 emergency medical system. Additional skills are covered for healthcare providers.
