Updated Program Guide & Revised First Aid Programs
The Lifesaving Society – Manitoba Branch has updated the Manitoba Program Guide. Please download and refer to the latest copy.
Furthermore, Manitoba Workplace Safety and Health has adopted the Canadian Standards Association’s guidelines for first aid training (CSA Z1210-17). This has resulted in changes to course programming, content, and performance evaluation for first aid courses. There are no updates or revision clinics that Instructors and Trainers must do. Instructors and Trainers must familiarize themselves with the new policies content before teaching a course. All Trainers must include the new policies and content when teaching Lifesaving and First Aid Instructor courses or recertifications.
All relevant information is found on the First Aid & CPR page of the Toolkit.
Affiliates may begin programming the new changes for First Aid programs now. All first aid courses must be programmed and taught with the 2019 policies and content by May 31, 2019.
