  • Evidence of Canadian citizenship, a copy of your Canadian passport, birth certificate or certificate of Canadian citizenship, or proof of Canadian permanent residency.  A Social Insurance Number does not fulfill this requirement

    AED Training                       
    CPR for Adults         
    CPR for Children     
    CPR for Infants
    Adult/Child Two Person CPR

As a medical student, you are responsible for ensuring that your CPR Level C certification is up to date. The School of Medicine does not provide CPR certification as part of its curriculum; however, it does offer an ACLS certification course during C3: MEDS 491 in April of your final year. In order to take the ACLS certification course, you must maintain a current CPR Level C or equivalent certification. The onus is on you to maintain your certification on your own time and at your own expense. We highly recommend that you recertify annually during the month of May to ensure that your certification is current for your ACLS certification course in C3.
