First Aid Certification

Further to our mandate to serve and protect the public, the College of Chiropractors of British Columbia (CCBC) Bylaws require all full registrants to obtain Standard First Aid with CPR-C certification by April 30, 2017. Registrants will also be required to maintain this certification while registered as a full registrant with the CCBC. This change will not only strengthen the core competency of practicing registrants, but it also aligns with the public’s expectation that regulated health care providers are equipped to handle basic health emergencies.

The Quality Assurance Committee has specified the following Standard First Aid with CPR C certifications as acceptable to fulfill this requirement:

Registrants are able to take courses for certification with any of the named providers, including courses that exceed the minimum requirements such as the Standard First Aid with CPR-HCP offered through St. John Ambulance which is a course developed specifically for Health Care Professionals.
