Aquatic and First Aid Award Extensions
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the closure of many businesses and facilities and the cancellation of certification and recertification courses. To support staff and the re-opening of these facilities and businesses, the Lifesaving Society will extend the validity of any awards required for employment that expired between March 1, 2020 to September 24, 2020. This includes National Lifeguard, Bronze Cross and First Aid certifications.
Certificates will not be reprinted. Employers and employees do not need to take any actions to qualify for the extensions.
