Test

The OLS-PPAT is an approved pre-requisite for employment within Ambulance New Brunswick, EHS Nova Scotia, and Island EMS. 

Background | OLS-PPAT

Omni Life Support’s Paramedic Physical Abilities Test is designed to identify weak areas in a Paramedic candidate’s physical abilities as they relate to the physical demands of Paramedic duty.  The OLS-PPAT was born from an endeavor by a joint committee of Physiotherapists, Registered Personal Fitness Trainers and licensed industry Paramedics to identify essential paramedic job physical requirements and create a representative means of testing a paramedic candidate’s ability to function safely and effectively in that environment.

The test is comprised of a pre-test clearance evaluation, and an obstacle course designed to simulate a series of events and tasks that accompany a standard emergency house call.
