Saskatoon First Aid offers Red Cross first aid and CPR re-certification courses. These courses are designed for candidates that need to renew certification in either first aid or CPR. These courses are cheaper and shorter than the original course. Candidates need to meet several simple prerequisites to be eligible for a renewal course. All courses include training and certification in the use of automated external defibrillators (AED’s).
The length of re-certification courses vary from 3 hours to 8 hours depending on the course.
The cost of a renewal course varies from 40 dollars to 70 dollars depending on the course.

To be eligible for a Red Cross renewal course candidates must meet the following criteria:
- Must have completed a full standard first aid course or a re-certification course of the same level within the past 5 years.
