Paramedics in Canada: Job Roles and Education


Often, it’s the competency of a paramedic professional that saves people’s lives. Individuals facing serious incidents such as vehicle accidents, drowning, heart attacks and gunshots and severe injuries need immediate attention and completely rely on paramedic professionals who transport them to the hospitals and provide emergency medical attention while on the go.
Paramedics, also known as emergency medical technicians, perform a very important job in saving the lives of people. They are a part of a rapid response team and are capable of work under immense pressure. They are the first ones to arrive at the scene and offer quick medical attention to the injured or patient after quickly analyzing their condition.

Paramedics are in great demand in Canada due to country’s aging population. The job prospects are high yet it is not a field for everyone. Those who are really interested in serving people and making a difference in their lives while being emotionally stable and sensitive at the same time may consider this career option. The work life of paramedics can be very hectic and there are no fixed working hours. They are a part of an emergency team that needs to act immediately when such incidents take place.

Though it’s a demanding profession, the job of paramedics can be immensely satisfying and very rewarding. Making a difference in people’s lives brings satisfaction and contentment while money follows in the form of decent pay packages.
Becoming Paramedics in Canada

If you want to be a paramedic, you will have to fulfill the basic requirement to enter the world of work, which is undergoing a post-secondary paramedic program and training. With this, you need to have a thorough understanding of various emergency situations that can occur and develop an ability to communicate and interact effectively with patients and others.

You must also possess an extensive experience in working with professionals in emergency, psychological situations and medical trauma. Prior to begin working as a paramedic, you must also successfully complete a recognized course in standard first aid, obtain a class ‘F’ driver’s license, complete a recognized course in CPR and attend a mask fit testing. Apart from this, you must clear vulnerable persons’ police background record check and ensure high level of physical and mental fitness all the time.

Studying Paramedic Program

Centennial College’s two-year post-secondary program in paramedic is a prestigious program that places equal emphasis on theoretical grounding and practical experience. It is a joint program with the University of Toronto that offers latest curriculum and numerous hands-on opportunities. The college has strong community partnerships, ensuring that the students get exceptional real life experiences.
The paramedic training program also offers students eligibility to take the Ministry of Health exam for advanced EMCA. Moreover, it is taught by paramedics who are actively working in the field. In order to apply for this program, students will need secondary school diploma, English Grade 12 C or University or equivalent, Mathematics Grade 11 M or 12 C or University or equivalent, Biology Grade 11 or 12 C or University or equivalent and one additional science (physics, chemistry or exercise science) Grade 11 or 12 C or University or equivalent.

Jason White, the author of the article, discusses the job roles of paramedics. He also mentions how Centennial College’s post-secondary paramedic program helps students prepare for a career in this field.
