Heart and Stroke Canada – BLSI and First Aid Instructor
A Heart and Stroke Foundation BLSI can deliver Basic Life Support (BLS) training for Health Care Providers and the general public. Basic Life Support for Health Care Providers is a prerequisite for entry to all medical and medical-related faculties and for those working in the health-care field.
A Heart and Stroke Foundation First Aid Instructor can deliver the new Standard First Aid program which is a prerequisite for most medical and medical-related faculties.
This program is divided into 3 sections:
- Core – Core training on how to facilitate training (All HSF Instructors must take the Core). This is common to all Heart and Stroke Foundation Instructors programs.
- HSF BLSI – Instructor for the BLS (or CPR/ AED) program (BLSIs can teach the HeartSaver program and BLS program).
- HSF SFAI – Instructor for the new Standard First Aid program (SFAIs can teach the Standard First Aid program).
In other words, a BLSI must take both the Core and BLSI; and, an SFAI must take both the Core and SFAI. All three must be taken to be a BLSI and an SFAI.
These are offered as Core, BLSI, SFAI back-to-back respectively.
Heart and Stroke Canada is in the process of developing new Instructor materials. As soon as these become available, courses will be set up. This will tentatively happen in Spring 2020.
More courses will be posted soon. If you have a group of at least 4 people, we can set a course for you. Contact us.
