Instructions to Access Red Cross Online Training

You must complete both the online and in-class components in order to receive your certificate. The online training should be completed before attending your practical course.  If you do not think you will complete your Red Cross online course before your practical training, please call or email us as soon as possible at 604-354-6199 or admin@lifepreservers.ca for next steps.

Step 10:  Activate your COURSE 
Step 11:  Enter your COURSE and complete it on your own timeline; you can start and stop as much as you like until you complete the full course.  

Trouble Accessing Your Online Course?

Common issues we have seen include messages such as "Error ID", "Unauthorized Access",  "Account Not Found" and "Medical Terminology". If you are experiencing such an issue, Red Cross advises that you try the following:

1. Confirm your Red Cross account email matches the one provided to Life Preservers; if it does not, please create an account with the correct email
2. Use a private or incognito window to log in
3. Use a different browser to login 

If you get to this stage and none of the above works, you will have to contact Red Cross to reset your account. Please send a screenshot of your account issue to myrcsupport@redcross.ca and note that the steps above did not work. 

You can also call Red Cross directly at 1-877-356-3226. Their business hours are 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
