Simplifying "instant" awards

The Lifesaving Society wants to make your life easier. That's why the following awards are always "instant," meaning the affiliate (you or your employer) issues the permanent certification cards along with the appropriate seals or crests directly to the successful candidates. These awards are:

  • Canadian Swim Patrol (Rookie, Ranger, Star),
  • Basic First Aid, CPR-A, -B, -C,
  • Anaphylaxis Rescuer, and
  • Fitness (Bronze, Silver, Gold).

Awards are purchased from the Society in advance of the course so that they may be presented to the candidates upon successful completion of the course. The Lifesaving Society does not require a copy of the test sheets for these award levels. Just keep the test sheets on file in your office.

Failing to issue certification cards upon course completion will lead the unknowing candidate to call the Society looking for his or her card. The Society will have to call you - requiring you to correct the error after the fact.

For all other Society awards, send test sheets to the Society's office immediately upon completion of the exam. The Society records the certification on the candidate's record (which can be viewed on the Find a Member page of our website) and then issues the permanent certification card directly to the successful candidate.
