Affiliate Recognition Awards

To view a list of the top affiliates in each category, see the Society's 2016 Newfoundland Labrador Report (page 5).

Affiliate recognition awards encourage and recognize the use of the Society's training programs. Point values (see below) reward affiliates who offer a full menu of lifesaving programs and reflect the relative degree of difficulty or amount of training and effort required to achieve each level including the programming time commitment. Recertifications are equivalent to half the value of original certifications.
