ACLS in Ontario?

  1. 0 Okay, my ACLS has expired and I haven't returned to work since moving back to Ontario. Where do nurses get recertified for ALCS outside of the hospital?

    Check with the local community colleges. Find out where they train paramedics and EMTs and see where they recert. I know that here in the Edmonton area I can recert for PALS at both Grant McEwan College and through STARS (Shock Trauma Air Rescue Service) but it costs a chunk of cash. I'm sure they also run ACLS several times a year.

    If your close to Toronto try the mitchner insititute.... I KNOW they run it usually every other w/e or so. They also do PALS, NRP and lots more. Check it out. If your closer to Hamilton try McMaster.... they are holding the course Oct 28/29th which I will be attending:wink2:

    Thanks for the responses...can I pick your brains some more. Are the recert classes 2 days long and what is the cost (approx)? Do the hospitals usually cover the cost when a person is employed? Thanks

    PALS recerts here are two days. The hospital will pay for the instruction (only if taken on-site) but not the manual or anything else, and will not give you time off to attend (PALS or anything else you might feel to be a good educational opportunity). If you don't already have the days off, don't sign up.

    ALL the course are 2 days.... the ones that I know of. I think the hospitals do recerts. Usually cost around 280-305$$$ plus manual. And it depends on your hospital if they'll pay. Some that I know of do and some don't!!! GOOD LUCK:wink2:
