Certifying the Next Generation Health Care Providers in BC!

UBC RN SocietyAfter a successful sponsorship opportunity with the 2015 Graduating Class of Nursing Students at the University of British Columbia, Iridia was honored to be selected as the preferred training provider to certify the second year cohorts in Basic Life Support and Mask Fit Testing!

On behalf of the education team at Iridia we want to thank Matthew, Kirk and Shivinder the President and Vice-President of the Nursing Undergrad Society for initiating this event and inviting Iridia to UBC on June 11 and 20th, 2015. We had a fabulous time certifying the next generation of Health Care Providers in BC!

A special thanks to our committed instructors Dr. Allan Holmes, Jeff Kain, Ole Olsen, Zahra Solawala, Tom Jones and Tom Attieh for creating a transformative experience for this group!

For anyone who missed this opportunity please do not hesitate to contact us to organize your own BLS or Mask Fit Testing with Iridia.
