Meet our dedicated teachers

The EGLS Course is the initiative of long-time colleagues Jean-Francois Lanctôt and Maxime Valois. Their passion and core motivation is to provide their fellow practitioners with a structured approach to shock and peri-arrest patients, one that's efficient, standardized and, ultimately, that will help save lives. They have surrounded themselves with the best team of instructors to create the EGLS course. They now offer workshops worldwide that present one of the best instructor/participant ratio in the world.
