Hospital and Field Placements/Outreach require Health & Safety, WHMIS and OWHSA training, and approved Non-Violent Crisis Intervention (NVCI) training prior to placements. There are additional costs associated with training that should be anticipated by students which are not covered by tuition fees. To be eligible for placement, you must submit proof of Standard First Aid certification, CPR level C, PRCSVS, and complete immunizations (if required by the placement agency) through ParaMed and pay associated costs. ParaMed services are the third party provider who collects all field placement documentation for the School of Health and Community Studies.
