To be an ambulance attendant or work in another paramedical occupation, you usually need a college, hospital-based or other recognized program in emergency medical technology or courses in emergency health care and supervised practical training.
Depending on type and length of training, you need to be licensed by a regulatory body in Prince Edward Island, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia.
If you'll be operating emergency vehicles you need the appropriate class of licence.
Most recent entrants have a trade/vocational certificate or community college diploma, and almost 1 in 10 has an undergraduate university degree.
