Hands-on, industry-relevant training 

In the Paramedic program you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of human anatomy and physiology, and learn procedures in emergency care, emergency equipment and mobile communication systems. You’ll also experience a heavy emphasis on fitness, as the Paramedic program is a physically demanding profession.

You can expect to spend, on average:

  • 28 hours per week attending classes over the course of a semester
  • 15 to 20 hours per week studying and completing class assignments

The program offers two intakes each academic year, starting in September and January. The Winter Term is an Alternate Delivery pathway created to support practitioners currently employed in the field. The intensive Alternate Delivery model allows students to maintain their work schedule as Primary Care Paramedics while also obtaining their Advanced Care Paramedic diploma in just over two years.

Students in the winter intake enrol in a condensed schedule that specifically accommodates shift work. The blended delivery runs year-round, with a two-week break during the winter holidays and 6-weeks of vacation at the program mid-point. Students learn through a mixture of in-class lectures, professional practice, online research, and on-the-job practicum and hospital clinical training. Because of the unique learning structure of the Alternate Delivery pathway, preference for admission into the January intake will be given to applicants who can secure their practicum with a service provider before the application deadline.


Open Studies Pathway

You now have an additional pathway to the School of Health and Life Sciences at NAIT. Complete one or more select Open Studies courses to be guaranteed a program entrance interview.
