2016 CPR & First Aid Update
The Lifesaving Society has integrated the 2016 Canadian Consensus Guidelines into its training programs and is now prepared to implement the new standards. The Lifesaving Society – Manitoba Branch has developed a web-based update process for all instructors. A livestream event was hosted on Monday, October 24th, and now all instructors can complete their mandatory first aid update here on the Toolkit.
UPDATE (November 4, 2016): We have had some wonderful feedback from across the province on our livestream YouTube event. Thanks to this feedback, you now have until April 1, 2017 to complete the update process.
For more information, please read this memo.
You require a Toolkit account to access the update.
