LIFESAVING INSTRUCTORS

The Lifesaving Instructor course prepares individuals to organize, plan, teach and evaluate lifesaving and first aid skills and resuscitation techniques in the Society’s lifesaving and first aid awards. Because the Society’s first aid courses are recognized by Ontario’s Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB), the Society complies with WSIB’s request that only “first aid instructors” teach WSIB-approved courses. Successful candidates on the Lifesaving Instructor course receive two certification cards: Lifesaving Instructor and Emergency First Aid Instructor.

Current Lifesaving Instructors are certified to teach Canadian Swim Patrol Program, Bronze Star, Bronze Medallion, Bronze Cross, Wading Pool Attendant, Lifesaving Fitness and Distinction.
