​Paramedic Recruitment

To qualify as a paramedic, you must be an Advanced-Emergency Medical Care Assistant (EMCA),  EMCA equivalent, EMCA-pending or a college student anticipating graduating in the next four months.

Becoming a paramedic with Middlesex-London Paramedic Service

  1. Successfully graduate from a certified Ontario College Paramedic Program receiving a minimum of a Primary Care Paramedic diploma
  2. Successfully pass the provincial certification exam
  3. Middlesex-London Paramedic Services requires that all potential paramedic recruits participate in pre-employment screening and must successfully pass each stage to progress in the recruitment process

Once you have obtained a Primary Care level of certification, a paramedic may extend their training to an Advanced Care level. This requires an additional year of study and a much higher level of certification standards than those at the Primary level.
