Paddle Canada First Aid Policy for Instructor Members
(last updated June 2013)
The two policy changes are as follows:
1) First Aid Requirements and Standards
Paddle Canada Instructors are required to maintain a minimum of Standard First Aid / CPR (14 hours) or Wilderness First Aid (16 hours). Insurance and sanctioned courses are not valid unless the instructors on the course meet the minimum First Aid requirements as outlined in the specific course syllabus.
Wilderness First Aid is the minimum required by any instructor certified to teach a course where an overnight is built into the syllabus. Unless stated otherwise, Standard First Aid/CPR is the minimum required for all other courses. Please refer to the course syllabus for the specific first aid level required.
