Paramedic Fitness Training

Paramedic Fitness Training

PARA 1002

General and job-specific fitness activities are studied and practiced, enabling students to perform the physical requirements of a Paramedic. Emphasis is placed on a strength component focusing on safe lifting practices. Students receive initial instruction on how to assess, monitor and improve their fitness level through designing and implementing a personal training program which includes both a fitness program and a nutritional awareness analysis. As part of an introduction to a lifelong healthy lifestyle, students participate in scheduled group fitness training sessions.
