Primary Care Paramedic program meeting rural demand in SW Sask.

The Primary Care Paramedic certificate program will be offered at Great Plains College Rosetown program centre for 41 non-consecutive weekends between Nov. 6, 2015 and Feb. 5, 2017.

“We are pleased to be offering this program in the fall,” said Darlene Anton, Great Plains College program coordinator. “It has been a number of years since we offered the program in our region and the demand from prospective students has been growing.”

Great Plains College serves a region of more than 100,000 square kilometres throughout southwest and west-central Saskatchewan. Offering the program in Rosetown allows the most accessibility for students currently living and working in the Cypress, Heartland and Saskatoon Health regions. The program expansion will help meet the high demand for paramedics across the health care sector.

“This weekend program is the only part-time offering in the province, making the training accessible for those students who are employed full-time during weekdays. It is a wonderful opportunity open to individuals looking for a career change or for those already in a health care related field seeking advancement,” said Anton.

The Primary Care Paramedic certificate emphasizes authentic hands-on training in pre-hospital emergency care, with both hospital and ambulance practicums. This industry-recognized program, brokered through Saskatchewan Polytechnic, is fully accredited by the Canadian Medical Association. The curriculum aligns with primary care paramedic roles and responsibilities outlined in the National Occupational Competency Profiles (NOCP) for the Paramedic Practitioner of Canada. Graduates are eligible to write the provincial licensing exam for registration with the Saskatchewan College of Paramedics.

Students will be enrolled on a first qualified, first admitted basis. Therefore, early application is encouraged.

“We are already receiving applications,” noted Anton. “This just further demonstrates that there are many people anxious to take this program. There are a limited number of seats available, anyone who is interested in applying should do so as soon as possible. We don’t want them to miss this opportunity.”
