Our Approach

We believe in a down-to-earth approach to learning. Other training centres can be a bit intimidating and we believe that is not a good way to acquire and refresh your knowledge. At Megacode, we treat you like the healthcare professional that you are.

Our Students Speak

M. Khan

“I received a lot of practice on difficult procedures such as intubation. Patrick is very good at explaining the material. I would highly recommend health care providers take any of his courses!”

B.Singh

“Patrick has the kind of approach that keeps you interested and focused. He explains important concepts in a way that helps turn the light on!”

Why We Cancel Some Courses

Sometimes our courses have to cancel and or re-schedule. The main reason for this is that there are not enough students (less than 2). The Heart & Stroke Foundation does not permit instructors to teach one on one. There are often times when students cancel (for various reasons) and this may lead to a cancellation in general. At Megacode, we try to complete our classes as planned and often offer discounted re-booking should we cancel the course. We don’t seek payment before your class as we try to be as user friendly as we can. We are competitive, priced right and honour our commitment to lifelong learning. Cheers!
