Read the selection requirements for your program.
When there are more equally qualified applicants than spaces available in a given program, Georgian uses formal selection techniques to determine final selection in that program, in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code and Ministry policy. The selection criteria and techniques approved by the Ministry include academic requirements and performance, testing, information session participation, resumés, reports, portfolios, physical health and age requirements. These techniques may vary from program to program.
For programs requiring selection testing, a testing fee is required at the time of scheduling the test. This testing fee is non-refundable.
The following programs require selection testing:
As an applicant to the Advanced Care Paramedic (PARM) program, you must have already completed a Primary Care Paramedic program or have obtained equivalency status through the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (A-EMCA certified). In addition, you must have current primary care paramedic experience with an ambulance service with a minimum of 2,000 hours. If you are not certified as a primary care paramedic, please apply to the Paramedic program (PARA).
You must complete an assessment exam as part of the selection process, as well as submit a current resumé. The exam will assess your knowledge related to practice as a Primary Care Paramedic as well as your knowledge related to anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, patient care theory and pharmacology. Your resumé should contain information about your academic background and work experience, etc.
We will email you with information about booking your selection test. Please bring photo identification and proof of application to the Advanced Care Paramedic program (Georgian number and OCAS number, available on your acknowledgement letter from Georgian College).
Questions? Please contact Randi McDermott, Program Co-ordinator, at 705. 728-1968, ext. 5462, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Admission testing for the following Health and Wellness programs is mandatory:
- Dental Hygiene
- Practical Nursing
- Veterinary Technician
The Health Occupations Aptitude Examination (HOAE) covers academic aptitude, spelling, reading comprehension, science and vocational aptitude. Test results are used for selection and will be released online to applicants. Selection for Health and Wellness programs is based both on academic grades and results from the HOAE.
If you are applying to more than one Health and Wellness program at Georgian, you need only test once. You will be required, however, to pay an administration fee for each additional program. Only qualified applicants should write the HOAE test. Please ensure that you meet (or will meet) eligibility to the programs to which you’ve applied.
