CPRed.ca is dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of all participants in our courses. The physical activity involved in a First aid/CPR course should not pose a health concern, however, there are individuals who may find the physical activities in a course challenging. Before you participate, we recommend you consult with your physician if you have any of the following:
• A history of heart attack or other heart conditions
• Respiratory problems (i.e. asthma)
• Bone or joint injuries
The course involves activities such as:
• Kneeling on the ground and compressing the chest of a manikin
• Lying and rolling on the ground
• Working with partners for choking procedures, bandaging and splinting
Participants may choose to bring a blanket or cushion to kneel or lay on during skills performances. First Aid and CPR courses require 100% participation by the student in order to receive a Red Cross certificate. If you are unable to physically participate to receive certification, we still invite you to attend, observe and participate when you can.
