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.
