ACLSACLS is designed to teach the skills needed to assess and administer care within the first 10 minutes of an adult ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation arrest.

This is an excellent course designed specifically for physicians, nurses, paramedics, and medical students, and is co-sponsored by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario. The Provider’s course is designed to develop proficiency in ACLS techniques, and upon successful completion of the course, you receive full certification in Advanced Cardiac Life Support which is recognized world-wide.


The courses marked "RN only" are exclusively for RNs, however RNs may attend any other regular courses.
