Primary Care Paramedic (PCP) Refresher
The PCP Refresher course is designed to meet the licensing exam prerequisite requirements of the Emergency Medical Assistant Licensing Branch (EMALB) for graduates that completed a Canadian Medical Association (CMA) accredited PCP certificate/diploma program or the JIBC Search and Rescue (SAR) Technician QL5A Medical Training Program.
This stand-alone course is offered in a blended online and classroom format. During the four weeks facilitated online portion participation is required while learners review PCP program resources, complete quizzes, engage in group discussions and write assignments. Upon completion of the online section, learners are required to attend a five day face to face classroom session followed by two days of practical assessment.
During this instructor-led workshop, students review, practice, upgrade and are evaluated on PCP skills as learned in the PCP Program.
The PCP Refresher is listed as a pre-approved activity under JIBC-PCP Refresher Course and is worth 40 continuing education credits within the EMA Continuing Competence System.
The PCP Refresher is the recommended course for PCP graduates who did not participate in EMALB licensing evaluation process within 12 months from the date PCP certification was issued, were unsuccessful in EMALB licensing process, or whose PCP license is suspended or expired.
The PCP Refresher workshop is also open for enrollment to graduates of the JIBC Search and Rescue (SAR) Technician QL5A Medical Training Program, licensed PCPs from out of province who want to obtain licensure in BC and currently licensed PCPs who want to "Refresh" their PCP skills. This is a great course for annual maintenance of your PCP license - 40 CE credits.
Upon completion of this course successful candidates looking to obtain licensure must apply to EMALB for examination.
Please note that this course does not guarantee success at licensure or IV endorsement.

International students will need to submit an application for Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) to have their training assessed for Primary Care Paramedic equivalency. Students should first self-assess by reviewing PCP course outlines and the Paramedic Association of Canada National Occupational Competency Profile (NOCP) prior to submitting a formal PLA application as fees do apply.
