Placement FAQs

Q: As a graduate student not currently within a Health Authority workplace, where can I update my CPR and N95 mask fitting?

CPR

You are required to have completed a CPR-HCP (Health Care Provider) Level course before you begin your clinical practice experience. CPR-HCP certification is to be renewed every year thereafter. You can take the course through a number of facilities (e.g., adult education at your local School Board, local colleges, St. John’s Ambulance, etc.).
