CTS Canadian Career College Adds Paramedic Program in Sudbury and North Bay

ParamedicStudents in Northern Ontario can now get trained to be a certified paramedic in about a year.

CTS Canadian Career College recently launched their new Paramedic program in Sudbury, with plans to offer the same program from their North Bay campus in May. They have been offering this program from their Sault Ste. Marie and Barrie campuses since September of 2011.

“In the Paramedic program you will gain the skills and knowledge to practice emergency pre-hospital medical care and to function as an integral member of the health care team assisting victims of accident or illness, safely transporting patients, and, if needed, continuing emergency treatment after arrival at a health care center,” said the school’s website.

The program has garnered a positive response so far, thanks to a hands-on approach to instruction. The 52-week program includes a 16-week placement, which includes 4 weeks in a clinical environment and 12 weeks in a field placement.

CTS Canadian Career College lists possible career avenues for their paramedic program grads as “non-institutional health services; hospitals; provincial and municipal governments; manufacturing, mining and other private sector organizations.”

    This program contains the same amount of hours (roughly 2000) of an Ontario Arts & Technology College (ie. Humber, Seneca, Conestoga) except is completed in one-year rather than two (fast-tracked)
