Graduates are eligible to complete the Provincial registry examination process and apply for registration with the Alberta College of Paramedics. After receiving their license, students can work as a Primary Care Paramedic.

In addition to our regular Admissions requirements, students must meet the following post-acceptance requirements prior to enrolling:
Note: We will only accept applications for admission from Canadians or Permanent Residents for the Primary Care Paramedic program. The reason for this is transferability of licenses, and the probable unavailability of post-grad visas for this 1-year program. If you are interested in this program and are from a country other than Canada please feel free to contact admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

We have launched our Campaign for Greater Impact to provide students with the very best learning opportunities and campus facilities for the decades ahead.
In Phase One of this Campaign, we plan to invest in much-needed campus renewal, including: upgraded Infrastructure, a new Student Residence, Cafeteria, Worship Auditorium, and expanded Aviation Training Centre. A modern campus requires an investment that is bold, and even expensive, but each Campaign Project is strategic, and designed to enhance Prairie’s campus and student life experience.
This expansion of PATC’s facility is a key project of Prairie’s Campaign for Greater Impact. It will increase the College’s capacity to train a new generation of Christian aviators to serve God in missions, and also address the growing need for trained pilots in the commercial aviation sector.
Invest in the next generation of missional professionals. Each year Prairie College distributes over $500,000 in scholarships and bursaries to students. We are grateful for each gift that reduces the burden of students’ tuition and allows students to fulfill their God-given professions.
Encourage inmates in five institutions across Alberta to discover or reconnect with Jesus Christ. This fund assists the students studying the Certificate in Bible program with scholarships, resources for classes, and instruction.
Prairie College is educating students to pursue a Biblical foundation for life and career. Your contribution to this fund assists in minimizing the College’s general operating expenses.
