SPC First Responder for Sport & Healthcare Professionals


This is a 3-day lecture and practical course (first 2 days for those requiring recertification only) that meets the requirements of the Canadian Red Cross Society and Sport Physiotherapy Canada for First Responder Certification.

The examples/scenarios used will be sport-specific to enhance the learning of all participants with regard to event coverage situations (whether planning to challenge the SPC Certificate/Diploma exams or not). At the end of the course, the participant:

• Complete a standardized written exam to meet national Canadian Red Cross standards

• Have an enhanced ability to respond to emergency situations on-site (ie: head injuries and bleeds)

• Be trained to use oxygen and an Automated External Defibrillator

• Be able to transfer players onto spinal boards effectively (including rolls)

*Please note that First Responder Certification must be renewed every 3 years*
