Current best practices in trauma life-support and treatment guidelines form an experiential, 56 hour course led by skilled paramedic field practitioners focusing on the development of the learner to attain core-competencies as defined by the Paramedic Association of Canada (PAC) . Provincially-licensed EMR graduates are employed within areas including: ambulance services; fire departments; industrial projects; life guarding and ski-patrol.
