This interprofessional course is designed for clinicians working in critical care areas or those expected to lead a team during a medical emergency.
It’s held in a realistic clinical environment in our world-class medical simulation facility, and facilitated by our educational and simulation experts.
Certification is a full-day (eight-hour) course. If you’re a clinician who has been certified within the past two years you can undergo recertification, which will take four hours to complete (recertification is also available in combination with PLS).
The course is for:
