First aid training for workers must now meet CSA Standard
Z1210-17 (First aid training for the workplace – Curriculum
and quality management for training agencies).
Approved first-aid training providers in Alberta have previously
updated the curriculum of their courses as follows:
• “Emergency first aid” equals CSA Standard Z1210-17
“basic first aid”.
• “Standard first aid” equals CSA Standard Z1210-17
“intermediate first aid”.
• “Advanced first aid” equals CSA Standard Z1210-17
“advanced first aid”.
Effective March 31, 2023, training providers must also
update course names to align with the national standard.
WCFF will be making changes to the course names now.
*Workplace first aiders are not required to get new certificates
or complete new first aid training before their valid first aid
certificate’s expiry date*
