Red Cross Assistant Lifeguard Instructors who hold Bronze Cross > Lifesaving Instructor
Canadian Red Cross Assistant Lifeguard Instructors who hold Bronze Cross (and who are a minimum 15 years of age) transition to Lifesaving Instructor certification by successfully completing a Branch-coordinated Lifesaving Instructor course.
This course may be offered in an in-person or blended online format. In some provinces/territories, the course may be augmented with content that leads to Bronze Examiner certification.
Contact the Lifesaving Society office in your province/territory for assistance and details.
The Society will waive the Lifesaving Instructor certification fee but you must purchase the applicable course resources. Fees charged by the Affiliate that hosts the Lifesaving Instructor course may apply.
This transition path ends December 31, 2022. If you do not complete the Lifesaving Instructor course 2022, you would be required to complete the course and pay certification fees.
