COVID-19 UPDATE: In class courses suspended until further notice – Online Blended Training Available for Temporary Certification
Safety is a priority for Ottawa Valley First Aid. We want to ensure everyone is safe while attending one of our courses and because of this, as of March 17, 2020, all in class courses have been suspended. The Government and Public Health update our country about COVID-19 on a regular basis and provide best practices for us which we are and will continue to follow.
How to obtain certification during the COVID-19 pandemic
Recertifications: All certifications that expire after March 1, 2020 are automatically temporarily extended until September 30, 2020. We will continue to monitor this situation and provide more information if anything changes.
Full Course: We are still able to issue a WSIB Approved Interim Certificate through online training. This Certificate will be valid during Social Distancing Protocols, after this point in time you will attend your in-class portion and receive your full certification. Register for the online portion of our Blended Course and you will be on our list to have first access to classes added once restrictions are lifted and in-class sessions resume.
With the announced phased approach of reopening businesses please keep in mind the changing environment that we will all be entering into.
Thanks for all your understanding and patience during these unique times.
Dan and Jo-anne
