New First Aid Test Posted
The Lifesaving Society has updated the written test required for Emergency First Aid and Standard First Aid courses. This new written test reflects the information found in the Society’s updated technical resources (Canadian Lifesaving Manual, Canadian First Aid Manual) and is to be used for all First Aid courses run using the 2015 CPR & First Aid Standards.
The existing (2010) First Aid test will remain available in the Toolkit until March 31, 2017 for use in any courses run using the 2010 standards. As of April 1, 2017 all First Aid courses must be taught and evaluated using the 2015 CPR & First Aid Standards and the old test will be retired and removed from the Toolkit.
