Toolkit & Program Updates

Revised Tools for Instructor Trainers

A revised LSI Course Planning Guide and a new First Aid Instructor Course Planning Guide have been posted to the Instructor Trainer page. Furthermore, the LSI recertification files for 2015/2016 have been removed.

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.

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.
