COVID 19 has changed First Aid, currently our in house classes are suspended until the time that we are able to have in person classes hosted.
First Aid in Manitoba, requires a certain amount of “in person” instruction. We do not accept classes that were completed 100% online or were not hosted by one of the organizations approved by the Government of Manitoba Department of Labour.
All certified leaders need to meet the minimum standard of Emergency First Aid with CPR A.
The Manitoba Fitness Council ONLY recognizes the following First Aid Providers:
- Canadian Red Cross
- St. John’s Ambulance
- Lifesaving Society
- The Heart and Stroke Foundation
- List of Approved Manitoba First Aid Providers – http://www.gov.mb.ca/labour/safety/training.html
- **Online certifications are not accepted
NEW MFC Changes to CPR and First Aid requirements:
The Manitoba Fitness Council has reviewed some of the barriers to retaining membership and annual CPR has been identified as a barrier especially for rural leaders. The MFC has passed a motion that CPR recertification is no longer required every year. CPR will be valid as per the date on the card. We have posted a CPR refresher video below and encourage you to visit it at least once every year.
**Annual CPR is still recommended. Please check with your employers as per their CPR requirement.
Contact us about these upcoming courses hosted here at the MFC office.
