Canadian First Aid and CPR Standards / International First Aid & Resuscitation Guidelines


The National First Aid and CPR Standards were developed for Instructors, Instructor Trainers, Master Instructor Trainers, Training Partners, and staff of the Canadian Red Cross to use and follow. The first section includes the standards for all of the participant-level First Aid and CPR/AED courses and the second section contains the requirements for all of the Instructor development programs that support the participant-level courses.

The standards included in this document are those accepted by the Canadian Red Cross based on International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) guidelines and they meet the decisions agreed upon by the National Training Agencies for first aid and CPR/AED techniques.
