Must complete all mandatory training requirements in a two year registration term to renew First Responder license. The following are the mandatory training requirements per Saskatchewan Health:

  • Mechanical Aids to Breathing (including oxygen)
  • Patient Assessment
  • Spinal Immobilization
  • Review of medical and trauma emergencies
Regional Education for First Responders Requirements

Must regularly attend education meetings held in the region. Meetings are held across the region in three sites (Outlook, Rosetown, Kerrobert), all education is standardized so First Responders can attend at anyone of the three sites and receive the same information.

  • All meetings start at 1:00pm, last 4 hours
  • Meetings are spread throughout each meeting month to allow easy access to education in more than one site around a First Responder
  • Each meeting also follows a standardized agenda that relays important information to First Responder
  • Overall works out to a commitment of 12 hours per year plus time to complete the online education
