CPR - HCP
CPR-HCP (Health Care Provider) covers all aspects of CPR skills and theory for adult, child and infant victims, including rescue breathing (artificial respiration) and the use of AEDs and bag-valve-masks (BVM). This HCP level is designed specifically for those who, as part of their job descriptions as Health Care Providers, have a duty to respond to medical emergencies (e.g., doctors, nurses, paramedics and allied health care professionals).
Evaluation & certification: Current Health Care Provider Instructors may teach CPR-HCP, but only current Health Care Provider Examiners may certify CPR-HCP candidates.
The Society has retired the term "Advanced First Aid Instructor". Current Advanced First Aid Instructors may continue teach CPR-HCP and current Advanced First Aid Examiners may continue to certify CPR-HCP candidates. The Lifesaving Society deems its certifications to be "current" for 24 months from the certification date.
