Ontario Paramedic – Paramedics are the front line of healthcare in Canada, and trained professionals are always in-demand. The first step to start your journey as a Primary Care Paramedic is to get trained in an approved institution that can offer you skills and knowledge to work in this challenging field.   

Ontario Paramedic Academy of BizTech College is committed to training aspiring paramedic professionals. For more than 7 years, we have helped students achieve their dream of becoming certified primary care paramedic.   

Top Reasons to Choose Ontario Paramedic Academy  

Approved by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care

Our paramedic program educates students according to the curriculum approved by the ministry.   

Short Duration Program

As a private career college, we follow the ministry approved curriculum; however, we expedite the study schedule without any breaks, which helps students complete the program within 60 weeks and get ready to take the certification exam – A-EMCA.   

Preparation for the Certification

In Ontario, to become a primary care paramedic, students have to take the provincial exam – Advanced Emergency Medical Care Assistant (AEMCA). This one-day rigorous exam tests students on their knowledge of Basic Life Support Patient Care Standards, Advanced Life Support Patient Care Standards and the Pre-hospital Care Syllabus.   

Our students are prepared with mock tests in all the related modules and practical aspects to thoroughly understand the concepts. An exceptional score of our students in AEMCA sets us apart.   

Clinical Placements

Primary care paramedic program students are guaranteed 100% clinical placements. Divided into two sections, students are placed in a hospital emergency room to gain clinical experience and on-the-job experience via ambulance ride-outs.   

This experience introduces students to the practical aspects of being a primary care paramedic, preparing for the upcoming exam, networking, and gaining first-hand experience.
