IMPORTANT CHANGE FOR ALL NURSING STUDENTS: The University of Calgary now REQUIRES that nursing students take a HEART & STROKE Basic Life Support course. Nursing students will require their BLS certificate before their clinical practicum begins in January 2020. You do NOT need your BLS certificate before the December 10 deadline for other administrative documentation.

Titan Health and Safety has partnered with the University to provide Heart & Stroke Basic Life Support courses directly on campus for your convenience. Winter 2019/2020 dates are now available!

Register using the online form below or call our office at 403-452-7727. You must be a current University of Calgary Nursing Student or Nursing Faculty Member to enroll in any of the courses listed on this page. Please have your valid student/faculty ID # ready upon registration.

 

Should I take a full course or a recertification?

You must take a full course if:

  • You have never taken a Basic Life Support course before
  • Your previous Basic Life support certificate is expired
  • You have a Canadian Red Cross Basic Life Support or CPR with Health Care Provider certificate, but you have not taken the Heart & Stroke renewal assessment

You are eligible to take a recertification course if:
