However, to be a designated first aid attendant in a workplace under the jurisdiction of WorkSafeBC, an employer must ensure that the attendant is at least 16 years of age. Candidates must be able to comprehend the information presented and physically capable of performing the required skills to be issued an OFA certificate.  Candidates will receive a digital copy of an Occupational First Aid Statement of Fitness upon registration for their review.  This will allow the candidate time to get an OFA Medical Certificate of Fitness from their physician if required.  Initial certification requires full participation & course attendance.
