JIBC extends Advanced Care Paramedic program to Victoria and Kelowna

ACP expansion enables Vancouver Island and Okanagan students to study closer to home

JIBC’s School of Health Sciences is pleased to announce an expansion of the Advanced Care Paramedic Program (ACP) to Victoria and Kelowna. The regional offerings will be delivered in parallel with the main ACP offering at JIBC’s New Westminster campus.

The expansion was initiated in response to feedback from students around the province that the financial and personal impact of relocating to New Westminster was a barrier to registering for the ACP Program.

In response to this feedback from students, JIBC approached the Ministry of Advanced Education for approval to deliver the ACP program in small regional cohorts, in conjunction with our main intake at the New Westminster Campus. In February 2012, JIBC received approval for a small cohort at JIBC’s Victoria campus, starting in September 2012. Subsequently, the Ministry also approved regional delivery of the ACP program at JIBC’s Okanagan campus in central Kelowna, starting in September 2013.
