About Us

Calgary Emergency Education specializes in offering courses and workshops for healthcare providers with an interest in emergency medicine. Certification courses such as Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), Basic Life Support (BLS), and the Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC) are offered throughout the year to medical personnel. However, our talented instructors are also happy to host our more basic courses, like BLS for other, non-medical organizations like lifeguards, public or private schools, Scout and Guides Canada, etc.

As of 2018, we’re excited to say new and exciting courses have been added to our curriculum, including Pediatric Emergency Assessment Recognition and Stabilization (PEARS), Stop the Bleed, Advanced Cardiac Life Support for Experienced Providers (ACLS EP), and many more.

Most of our workshops are offered throughout the year and provide advanced learning in a variety of subjects for medical employees and students. However, we’re also happy to provide private classes for institutions. These individual group courses for your business or not-for-profit organization are tailored to your needs to ensure your day is productive and enjoyable. We have done several courses at dental offices and private surgical clinics to allow the teams to learn in the environment they are most likely to encounter a critically ill patient. These courses are a lot of fun and allow us to work on team building in addition to the course material.

Our talented educators share their expertise in an informal and stimulating environment. As long as you’ve earned the necessary prerequisites, or signed up to complete them earlier in the day, you’ll find our instructors are able to give you all the individual attention you need and answer your questions.

All of our educators and presenters are nurses or physicians with years of current emergency and pre-hospital experience. Each instructor teaches multiple courses per year and are currently working in a tertiary emergency department. We require that our instructors be well respected in their field and have a love for teaching and sharing knowledge.  

At Calgary Emergency Education, you have an opportunity to learn from some of the most highly skilled emergency medicine educators in the province. We create a collaborative, relaxed environment that allows you to get the information you need as well as plenty of hands-on practice. Our laid-back and approachable style has students returning over and over again. Come join us at one of our courses or workshops — we can’t wait to meet you!
