Prior to taking courses at Centennial College, students must fill out a medical certificate and have current qualifications in CPR and standard first aid. Other non-academic requirements such as a vulnerable sector police check, fitness standards and face mask fit certification will also ultimately be required. Applicants may arrange to complete some of these requirements during their first year of study at the University of Toronto Scarborough. The appropriate forms will be distributed to students to verify the afore-mentioned information in the summer semester following their first year. Additional information will be received in their freshman package from Centennial College prior to starting the College portion of the program. For more information, please contact the Program Coordinator at Centennial College, David Ramsay, or the Administrative Coordinator for the Joint Programs, Karuna Ratnarajah.
Please note, students enrolled in the Paramedicine program must be fitted for an N95 mask. In accordance with the CSA Standards (CSA Z94.4-2011) people with beards are not able to be fitted for tight fitting respirators, including N95 masks. The tight fitting respirators are not able to provide an effective seal along the wearers face when they have a beard and are therefore not functional. Without face mask fit certification, students cannot complete the requirements of the program.
