If you work with school-aged children (over age 8) as well as younger children, you may be required to take Standard First Aid & CPR level C.

Recertification

When the Emergency Child Care First Aid & CPR certificate has expired, the full 8 hour course must be repeated. Regarding first aid training for child care workers, the BC Child Care Licensing Regulation states that the first aid certificate "is not renewable unless the holder, before the expiry date, participates in at least 8 hours of further instruction, at least 3.5 hours of which must be delivered in person, followed by an examination that includes demonstration and evaluation of the skills relevant to the matters described in section 2 of this Schedule." (Schedule C of the B.C. Child Care Licensing Regulation)

Child care workers in BC must do eight hours of first aid & CPR training every three years. Shorter recertification courses are not acceptable.

Canadian Red Cross does not yet have a blended class to replace the current Emergency Child Care First Aid & CPR Level B program.
