FAQs

Who requires this training?

Any workplace that pays WSIB premiums or that is regulated under the WSIA is required to have workers trained in first aid and CPR.

Additionally, many regulated professions require that their members hold a valid first aid certificate. For example:

  • Health care professionals (nurses, chiropractors, massage therapists)
  • Early child care educators
  • Pharmacists

How do I know if I need to take Standard or Emergency First Aid?

If your workplace is WSIA-regulated with 5 or fewer workers per shift, you require Emergency First Aid and CPR. If your workplace has more than 5 workers per shift, you will require Standard First Aid and CPR. If first aid training is a requirement specific to your professional designation, please check with your regulatory body as to which type of training they require.

How long does the certificate last?

Your certificate will remain valid for 3 years from the date of completion.

What if I have taken first aid in the past with a different training provider?

Refresher training must be done with the certifying body that issued your original certificate (Ie. If you did Standard first aid and CPR training with the Red Cross, you cannot take refresher training with St. John’s Ambulance, and vice versa.)

If you are taking either Standard or Emergency training you can choose any accredited training provider whose instruction meets the program requirements set out by the WSIB.
