The WSIB has issued a statment that certificates that expired during the pandemic are extended to December 31st, 2021. As a result, the first aid traing sessions that were scheduled for this May have been cancelled. This decision was made to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. We will re-assess the situation in October and determine at that point if sessions will be offered in November/December.
This classroom training session educates attendees in emergency level first aid and CPR. Certificates are normally valid for 3 years from the date issued.
