Paramedic in Industry
The Paramedic in Industry course (PARA1020) is an OFA bridging program for licensed EMR, PCP and ACP learners who want to work as a First Aid attendant in an industrial setting.
This course is designed to acknowledge the previous training, knowledge, and skills of licensed Paramedics. It is intended to be an orientation into the expectations, roles, and responsibilities when practicing as an Occupational First Aid (OFA) Attendant.
The course focuses on areas where OFA practice expectations may differ from the expectations for practice at their current Paramedic level. Successful students will receive a WorkSafeBC Occupational First Aid Level III Paramedic in Industry certificate which is valid for three (3) years with the stipulation that a valid British Columbia EMA license is maintained throughout the 3-years.
Proof of current British Columbia EMA licensure at the level of Emergency Medical Responder (EMR), Primary Care Paramedic (PCP) or Advance Care Paramedic (ACP) must accompany the registration.
The course is a combination of independent study online (2 weeks), followed by a 4 hour face-to-face classroom session on the END DATE of class. Actual time to complete the assignments is approximately 4-16 hours. Attendance to the evaluation day is mandatory.
