What are the levels of CPR certification in Canada?


CPR level A with AED training means the first aider (you) have learned the skills to recognize a cardiovascular emergency and give CPR while applying an AED to an adult. Adults in first aid terms are any casualty that appears to be over the age of 8.


CPR level B with AED training means the first aider has learned to recognize a cardiovascular emergency and give CPR to adults and children while applying an AED to both age groups. Children in first aid terms appear to be a casualty between the ages of 1-8.


CPR level C with AED training means the first aider has learned to recognize a cardiovascular emergency and give CPR to adults, children, and infants while applying an AED to both age groups. Infants in first aid terms appear to be a casualty under one year.


BLS CPR Level C with AED training is a course designed for healthcare professionals where cardiovascular emergencies are recognized by a team approach. Not only will the first aider learn how to give CPR to all ages, but they will also learn how to use a BVM, Rescue breathing, and how to take a casualty's vitals.
