    Testimonials

    I always knew from a child that I wanted to be a Paramedic, I loved the thought of helping people in times of need. I chose SLC because of its smaller atmosphere, I felt like people actually got to know each other rather than just being a number at a giant college. The Paramedic Program staff at SLC were amazing, you could tell they were truly passionate about what they do and they don’t just clock in and clock out to get paid.

    The Paramedic Program was extremely challenging and pushed me in every way. I am so happy I chose to do the Paramedic Program at SLC because it prepared me for the real world. I moved to Alberta right after school, it was always my dream to live out west, I knew this previous to starting college. It was a rough start when I first got out here, the work was scattered all over and the province is very different in many ways, it took some getting used to. I started working as an Industrial Medic the summer after I graduated in 2010. I worked very hard for two years and put in a lot of hours I was able to get on with a company in 2013 called Advanced Paramedic Ltd. (APL) as the logistics coordinator, I since then have been promoted to Industrial Medical Supervisor and oversee about 20+ medics in the field.

    St. Lawrence College provided me the tools to succeed in my current role. I would never have been prepared for the work load in the field if it wasn’t for Dan Shannon pushing me to do my best at all times. Going to SLC was the best decision I made, it opened the doors to where I am today and I like where I am today a whole lot!
