Paramedic in Industry

Course description

This course is designed to acknowledge the previous training, knowledge, and skills of licensed Paramedics. It is intended to be an orientation into the expectations, roles, and responsibilities when practising as an Occupational First Aid (OFA) Attendant.

The course is a combination of independent study prior to the course classroom date, followed by a 4 hour face-to-face classroom session.

Safety Alert

This course is physically demanding. It will require prolonged kneeling, working in stooped positions, and rolling patients. Each class participant is required to function as attendant, helper and patient.

Accommodation may be made for participants that indicate a problem with some of the aforementioned activities. Participants may be permitted to adopt “comfort” positions on the floor to avoid kneeling or stooping for prolonged periods, even though the positions may not facilitate optimum patient care. However, regardless of accommodation made during the class, participants will be required to demonstrate specific skills according to an accepted standard before certification is issued.

Medical exam gloves are used during all practice sessions. Participants need to be aware of possible allergic reactions to gloves.

Personal Protective Equipment (“PPE”) knee pads recommended.
