As of September 1, 2018, Canadian Red Cross Emergency First Aid and Standard First Aid courses are considered equivalent to Worksafe BC Occupational First Aid Level 1 for
the purpose of workplace first aid attendants.  And Red Cross courses
have the added benefit of national recognition, more flexible class
