Update: June 19, 2020
We are so proud to announce that Life Start's very own Virtual Workplace Standard First Aid CPR/AED Level C Program has been officially approved for launch. This means that our newly-developed program is 100% compliant with WorkSafe NB Occupational Health and Safety Regulations. This is huge! We could not have come this far without our participants, supporters and raving fans. We want to thank all of you for your continued support of locally-owned businesses (woot-woot!).
And don't worry, we continue to keep safety top of mind as always. This still means maintaining smaller class sizes, thorough sanitization between each class and social distancing of 6 feet at all times. To learn more about our new virtual options and to book, read the descriptions below then visit our course calendar (Hint: Look for the 2 orange-labelled courses).
- Our new Virtual Workplace Standard First Aid CPR/AED Level C can be 85% completed online through video-based learning, followed by a short 2.5-hour in-class skills assessment. Once the skills assessment has been completed - a three-year certification is emailed and you are done!
- Our new Virtual Annual Skills Refresher is also now, you guessed it, virtual. Yes, 100% online! Please note that we will not be offering in-class annual skills refresher at this time.
Virtual Workplace Standard First Aid CPR/AED Level C Description

Copy of Previous COVID-19 Updates...
May 20, 2020. We're thankfully now able to open our doors for in-person training, but things around here will look and work differently for the foreseeable future. We can now host a limited number of in-person classes (with a limited number of participants). For this reason, we strongly recommend that if you require Workplace Standard First Aid & CPR/AED Level C, please take advantage of our ADAPTED COVID-19 PROGRAM, which allows us to free up our limited seating for those who may be unable to complete the online training. For those that do join us in the classroom, please know that we have implemented strict protocols in order to protect our participants during the COVID-19 Pandemic. This includes temperature and symptom checks, social distancing, frequent hand-washing and sanitizing of equipment, along with other precautions. We cannot admit anyone showing symptoms and we are also spacing out our classes to allow for several days in between to allow for thorough disinfection. Please work with us as we navigate the next few months.
May 1, 2020: In accordance with New Brunswick's continuing restrictions and State of Emergency guidelines, we are still unable to hold in-person training sessions. Until the COVID-19 recovery plan reaches its Yellow Phase, please refer to our online class options for information on your First Aid Certifications.
March 19, 2020: Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian Red Cross has closed their facilities to the public until further notice, and the Government of New Brunswick has declared an Official State of Emergency. In accordance with this, we will cease in-class operations effective immediately. We do have some good news to share. Although our passion lies in hands-on and interactive teaching, given these are unprecedented times, the Canadian Red Cross is offering a unique option to ensure that you can benefit from First Aid & CPR certification from the comfort and safety of your homes. That means we’re hands-off, for now.
