Throughout the camp, participants will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of topics, including CPR, wound care, splinting, patient assessment, and much more.

EMA Licensing Board Minimum Age Information

The Emergency Medical Assistants Licensing Board has the following policy in place for the registration of emergency medical assistants (EMAs) under the age of 19:

  • No emergency medical assistant licences will be issued to applicants under the age of 16;
  • All licence holders that are 16 to 18 years old must be supervised by a fully licensed EMAs of the same level or higher who is at least 19 years old. This term and condition is removed when a licence holder turns 19.

This does not mean you cannot get a First Responder or Emergency Medical Responder certification if you're below 16, it just means that you can't go on to do your EMA Licensing Board Exams and work on an ambulance until you meet the above requirements for minimum age.
