UTEFR members must have at minimum a certification in SFA + CPR-C to join the Response Team. Members who want to join the Response Team must pass a skills assessment conducted by UTEFR.

Does UTEFR offer First Aid Courses?
Unfortunately we do not hold First Aid courses at this time. We highly recommend our friends at UofT First Aid Society for certifications in Standard First Aid, Emergency First Aid and CPR-C or HCP! They offer significantly discounted courses, are a Canadian Red Cross training partner and net proceeds are donated to charities!
Is UTEFR the same as Skule Patrol?
Not exactly. The UTEFR patrol team plays the same role as Skule Patrol, except we participate at events that happen year-round; Skule Patrol operates only during Frosh Week, and is not run by UTEFR.
