  1. Thanks, Thru. And for those with medical experience SJA is much better. Sent from my SGH-T889V using Tapatalk 4
  2. Thanks again, BEorP! Sent from my SGH-T889V using Tapatalk 4
  3. Hi again, And thanks for the warm welcome, Dwayne! I appreciate the advice, Thrutheashes. Seems like a good way to break into instructing, as the startup, liability and insurance looks a little costly... Also a good way to network and know what I'd need. CPRted, I'm a mature (43) student/elementary teacher and thus very comfortable with teaching...would it still be recommendable to do the SJA course for instructing as opposed to other programs? Also, do I need to be a paramedic first to take the instructor's course? Thanks again, all. Sent from my SGH-T889V using Tapatalk 4
  4. Hi all, I hope I've posted this in the right forum. As a prospective paramedic student who might get into teaching Emergency and Standard 1st Aid and CPR training workshops, I'm wondering what the start up costs are for the equipment if I wanted to run my own business. Also wondering about how easy/difficult it is to do so. I'm located in Toronto, Canada but happy to hear advice/comments from anywhere. Cheers!
  5. Any idea on the start up costs for equipment and what sorts of equipment is actually needed? Sent from my SGH-T889V using Tapatalk 4

  7. BEorP, I didn't take that as discouraging. I appreciate any and all comments. Because I can supply teach (flexible, choose my work days), I'd eventually be able to transition to full time paramedic if the opportunity arises. Not to hijack my own thread, but any thoughts on earning income as an emergency first aid instructor? Easy/hard? Cheers. Sent from my SGH-T889V using Tapatalk 4
  8. Thanks for your reply. I've heard how difficult it is to get a job in Ontario and thus thinking i can manage financially by continuing to teach as long as long as is necessary ...while also becoming an emergency first aid instructor in addition to running my own third-party courses as a way to make the education pay. Any thoughts? Cheers. Sent from my SGH-T889V using Tapatalk 4 Sent from my SGH-T889V using Tapatalk 4
  9. Thanks for your reply. I am aware how difficult it is to get a job in Toronto. However, I am really interested in the learning aspect of the paramedic program... I'm also interested in the option of becoming an emergency first aid instructor and running my own third-party courses, as a way to make the education pay. I'd appreciate any thoughts on that as well. =) Sent from my SGH-T889V using Tapatalk 4
  10. Hi all, I'm very close to applying for the paramedic programs there and would appreciate if anyone could tell me how intensive the program will be, as I'll need to work (supply teaching) while studying. Are the classes generally bunched into 2 or 3 days or is it a full 5-day/week program? (I'm 43, a teacher, and already have a few recent university science courses under my belt: biology, microbiology, anatomy and physiology, vertebrate anatomy and physiology, and chemistry.) Thanks in advance! Sent from my SGH-T889V using Tapatalk 4
  11. Hi all, Though no one's posted here in 7 years...I thought I'd revive it and intro myself! So, hello! Here to learn as much as I can on the noble paramedic profession...leaning hard on leaving my teaching profession (kindergarten-gr 8) to go into paramedicine. Look forward to reading more and participating! Cheers, all! Sent from my ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T using Tapatalk HD
