    CPR-AED is mandatory to get a Sirius attestation for your course. We offer CPR/AED in our courses, but if you wish to opt-out of this module, you need to have a CPR/AED valid card for at least 12 months following the course. If you have a valid card, please upload your card while registering online. If you do not have a valid CPR-AED card, you need to register to the CPR portion.

    Se préparer pour un cours

    Sirius courses demand both a high level of concentration and some physical effort. It is important to arrive to your course well-rested. We recommended that you avoid planning additional activities during meals or evenings between course days. Sirius requires full participation and attendance in our courses. If for any reason you are not able to participate in any component of the course, contact our office to see if alternative arrangements may be made.

For advanced courses (AWFA and WFR), there is a final practical exam.

    All Sirius course certifications are valid for three (3) years. Sirius continues, however, to encourage course participants to maintain their skills and knowledge through frequent practice sessions, in-house training and by following refresher courses annually. Indeed many Sirius clients take recertification courses every year regardless of the expiration date printed on their cards. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us.
