Begin your career in emergency care
Are you looking for a career where you’re called upon to help others in their time of need? This entry level medical program gives you the hands-on training you need to provide emergency medical services to the sick and injured. This program gets you on the path for the Primary Care Paramedic Program which leads you to becoming an Advanced Care Paramedic.
This program will give you the abilities, essential skills and confidence to provide basic first-on-scene emergency care to patients before and after Emergency Medical Services (EMS) arrives.
The first course you will take in the EMR Certificate program is ITMS100, which is a prerequisite for EMRE200 Core Medical. EMRE160 and OHSC160 can be taken before or in conjunction with ITMS100 and EMRE200; however, you must complete EMRE200, EMRE160 and OHSC160 before you take EMRE300.
Prior to the enrollment of EMRE300 you must meet the ACP Screening requirements as follows:
• 18 years of age
• English 30-1 or 30-2 or equivalent
• Math 10 Pure or 20-1 or equivalent or Math 20 Applied or 20-2 or equivalent
• Biology 30 or equivalent
• Driver’s license – Class 5, GDL removed
To qualify for your Emergency Medical Responder Certificate, you must complete the above courses and provide proof that you have successfully completed a 40-hour Alberta Paramedic Driver Operator Course (EMRE400), or similarly approved program.
