|Description:||If you're looking for a challenging career opportunity in emergency care services, health facilities, and other health care agencies, Lambton College's Paramedic program can get you there with the skills you need to succeed. Students choose Lambton College because: they can apply their skills in state-of-the-art simulation environments (Paramedic Lab and Ambulance Simulator - students experience what it feels like to drive emergency vehicles in varied road conditions in a safe and controlled learning environment and Community Apartment Virtual Lab - allows for a real life working environment in a controlled setting); our graduates are eligible to work anywhere in Canada - it is one of only a few programs with National Accreditation through the Canadian Medical Association; and there are a number of volunteer opportunities that exist for students to assist with paramedic services in the community (i.e. Sarnia Sting games, local fundraising and entertainment events).
Graduates apply relevant theory, practice safely and competently, and comply with current legislation, regulations, standards, and established policies and procedures. Students are encouraged to have a gym membership since fitness is a major attribute to success in several areas of the program. Access to a vehicle is also required to attend clinical sites in terms 3 and 4.
