O que eu aprenderei?

Paramedics have a career that offers the opportunity to serve people in need, frequent challenges, and excitement. These professionals provide pre-hospital emergency care to people in the community experiencing injury or illness.


Paramedics respond to medical, traumatic and a whole variety of other types of calls. Other aspects of the job include interfacility transfers, ongoing continuing medical education and base duties. Paramedics are typically dynamic, fun-loving individuals who love challenges and change.

Fleming's two-year Paramedic diploma program will prepare you for the challenges and rewards of this exciting career. You will be trained in all aspects of pre-hospital emergency care, including the knowledge and skills to deal effectively with medical emergencies and traumas, and the ability to communicate effectively with patients, other emergency responders and other members of the medical community. Your training will be delivered in classroom, laboratory, clinical, and field practice settings, so that you will acquire the optimum combination of theory and practical skills. This program has been created with the assistance and advice of paramedic professionals and associations, and as such, will provide you with the essentials you need to provide health care in the midst of a crisis.


As a graduate of this program, you will be qualified as a primary care paramedic and will be eligible to write the provincial examination. Upon successful completion, you will be certified by the province as an Advanced Emergency Medical Care Assistant - AEMCA. Once you complete the program and the provincial paramedic exams, you will be eligible to work as a primary care paramedic in ambulance services throughout Ontario. Once working as a primary care paramedic, you can then upgrade your skills to work as an advanced care or critical care paramedic. You may also find employment in health and safety, or rescue services. This diploma is also an asset to anyone seeking employment as a firefighter or police officer. This is especially relevant in situations where paramedic/emergency medical care might not be available, such as in remote areas.

Students are advised to try to obtain their class F licence as soon as possible as an F licence is required for job applications in early fourth semester.

Students should also be advised that eligibility for employment is subject to the requirements of the Ambulance Act, which includes a valid Ontario class F licence, a criminal reference check, and physical fitness, as lifting is a major component of the job.
