Many employment types are required to have current first aid and / or CPR certificates. Doctors, nurses, life-guards, construction workers, oil workers, gas workers, miners, industrial workers, office workers, health care professionals, security guards, massage therapists, physiotherapists, fitness workers and many more are required to maintain current first aid and / or CPR certifications. After taking the original course participants may be able to attend a re-certification course which is cheaper and shorter than the original course. Renewal programs are available for courses such as standard first aid, CPR level “C” and “HCP”. Some awards, such as occupational first aid level 1, require participants to re-take the original course in order to maintain certification.

Acute kidney failure
Kidney failure happens when the kidneys are unable to filter wastes from the blood. This leads to a toxic build-up in the blood, a condition known as azotemia. Toxins in the blood can cause chemical imbalances and damage to other major organs. Acute kidney failure can happen because of:
- Condition that slows blood flow to the kidneys such as hypertension
- Trauma and/or injury to your kidneys
- Damage to the ureters – the tubes that lead from the kidney to bladder
