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.
