Requirements for Paramedic Bridging

Program Description
Graduates of the Pre-Service Firefighter Education and Training Program have the opportunity to bridge into the two-year Primary Care Paramedic program and complete an additional diploma in three semesters.

Classroom components emphasizing biological science, humanities and ambulance services provide the theoretical basis for interventions required to deal with medical or trauma emergencies. Emphasis is placed on the ability to communicate well with patients, families and health professionals and to function effectively as part of an interdisciplinary health care team. Clinical labs and field placements provide a milieu where students are able to apply theory into practice through assessment and the provision of a primary level of care.

Career Opportunities
Graduates may work with an ambulance service, as technical assistants in hospital emergency departments, as well as in sports injury management services and emergency services.
