BLS certification must remain current throughout clinical training, therefore it is recommended that certification be obtained just prior to clinical training.

The NAIT Continuing Education Course that meets this requirement is CPRS100.
- Basic computer skills - Students must have basic computer skills prior to admission, including word processing, presentation creation (e.g., PowerPoint), Internet, and email experience. Students will also be expected to produce and share small video presentations for specific course work.
You may apply for advanced credit once you have been accepted into the program. Advanced Credit can be Transfer Credit (for completed post-secondary courses), Credential Recognition (for completed certificates, diplomas or degrees) or PLAR (Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition).
Transfer Credit & Credential Recognition: In addition to the common guidelines outlined on the Recognition of Prior Learning website and on the Request for Transfer Credit or Credential Recognition form (pdf), your program has other advanced credit requirements that are applied to each request including:
- You must have completed the course or program no more than 7 years ago
- You must have a minimum mark of C- in the course or program
If you do not qualify for transfer credit or credential recognition, Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) may be an option.
