Western College of EMS

Profile of Career College/Trade School

The instructors at Western College Of EMS are highly experienced practitioners who have spent many years as paramedics. Pre-hospital care professionals play a critical role in the entire health care system as they are the ones who are responsible for the life of a patient till he or she reaches a hospital. Usually they are most required in accident cases or emergencies and therefore students have to be trained well to take care of the patient in all circumstances. The Western College of EMS hence has small class size that enables individual attention. The college offers three programs that equip the student to become either an Emergency Medical Responder or an Emergency Medical Technologist - Paramedic or an Emergency Medical Technician Ambulance. All these three programs are based on the standards set by the Alberta College of Paramedics. The Alberta College confers a license to students who pass the exam enabling them to pursue a career in the medical industry. In the entry level course students get two days of hands-on experience in first responder training. This equips the student to become a pre-hospital care professional. Students are given basic understanding of anatomy, physiology, patient assessment, and EMR skills. The ambulance program offers students hands-on experience with modern equipment used by an ambulance service. In this course students are taught airway management, traumatic emergencies, medical emergencies and cardiac monitoring among other subjects.
