After successful BLS co-facilitation and monitoring, an instructor fee of $75 will be required by the Heart and Stroke Foundation to receive BLS Instructor Certification credentials.
The BLS Instructor Course is delivered in partnership with the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. The following prerequisites are required:
- Basic Life Support Course completion within 12 months (optional BLS Renewal add-on on the first evening – see option below when registering)
- Acute, emergency and/or critical care hospital or pre-hospital practice for at least 6 months
