In Ontario, a First Aid and CPR certificate is typically valid for three years from the issue date. After your certificate expires, you must renew your certification by taking a refresher course that covers the latest techniques for providing first aid and CPR.

It's important that your First Aid and CPR certification is valid, especially if you work in a job that requires you to respond to emergencies. Having a current certification not only ensures that you are prepared to respond in an emergency, but it can also help instill confidence in others that you are trained and capable of providing effective first aid and CPR.

Renewing your certification is typically a straightforward process. Many organizations that offer First Aid and CPR courses provide these refresher courses that can be completed in a single day. These courses often include hands-on training and practical exercises to help participants retain the information.

You can receive a new First Aid and CPR certificate with Flex Point Academy if you need your certificate renewed. Visit our First Aid and CPR courses and sign up for the certification you need. If you are unsure your certificate needs to be renewed, speak with one of our training coordinators today and we’ll offer a helping hand.
