ACLS Division
(Advanced Cardiac Life Support)

Our 2017 schedule includes upwards of 40 regular weekend provider courses and mid-week recertification courses. We can also provide “customized private courses” upon request, and routinely do so for the Dental, Radiation and Fertility sectors.

The 2015 Guidelines, as set by the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation and the American Heart Association, were implemented in October 2015. 100% of our ACLS Faculty has been fully updated to those Guidelines and they are included in all instruction at our courses.

PLEASE NOTE: It is a requirement of the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada that all students taking ACLS must now have taken a Heart & Stroke Basic Life Support Course (BLS) prior to their ACLS Provider Course. The BLS certification must be valid within the past 12 months maximum, otherwise your ACLS certification could be put on hold temporarily. For more information, visit the Heart & Stroke website.

Our courses are taught by award-winning instructors with real world experience, who do this for a living. The faculty is composed of physicians, nurses, dentists, paramedics and physician assistants from varying disciplines and who all work in high acuity areas or are professional educators.
