Ladies and gentlemen, your new paramedics
This group of 13 Northern Lakes College students are the first-ever graduates of the college’s new advanced care paramedic program. That program, along with the primary care one, both recently received accreditation from the Canadian Medical Association and Accreditation Canada – a pretty big deal, which the college announced a couple of weeks ago. Apparently there’s a waiting list for both programs when they start up again in the fall. Nine of the advanced paramedic grads are from northern Alberta and many hope to find work close to their home communities.
The paramedic program grads were part of the larger NLC convocation ceremony held in Slave Lake last Friday, June 1. We hope to have more coverage of that in next week’s Leader.
