ALARM Virtual

The SOGC places the utmost importance on improving intrapartum care, from the process to its outcomes. One way to achieve that objective is through offering continuing education programs like the ALARM course (Advances in Labour and Risk Management).

ALARM Virtual was adapted with the support of the ALARM committee and ALARM instructors to combine the content of the ALARM program with the convenience of online study.

  • ALARM Virtual is comprised of the ALARM manual, a multiple choice exam and a collection of 13 independent online study modules covering the wide variety of topics discussed in the ALARM program.

  • This course can be completed at your own pace and each registrant will have access to the online content for one year from date of registration.

  • The content of the course is evidence-based and incorporates the Canadian practice guidelines, so participants who complete the course gain an understanding of the latest best practices for providing care.

  • The ALARM course objective is to evaluate, update and maintain the competence of obstetricians/gynaecologists, family physicians, midwifes and nurses.

  • This course is not intended to certify attendees in any procedural skills and is not a substitute for clinical exposure and mentorship. ALARM is intended to provide educational experience for its participants.

  • The ALARM Virtual certificate of participation will be awarded only to those who pass the written examination and complete all online study modules.

Cancellation policy:

  • Cancellation requests received within 30 days of registration (without accessing the online content) will be refunded minus an administration cost of 25% of the total course fee.

  • For cancellation and rescheduling requests received more than 30 days from registration or after accessing the online material, the course fee is non-refundable.

All cancellations or rescheduling requests must be made in writing to the SOGC National Office by email at [email protected] or by mail to:
