Infant Transfer Team Application Process



Candidates are required to apply online.

Your assigned Talent Acquisition Representative will reach out to you once your submission has been received and you will be asked to submit the following documents:


Short-listed applicants will be invited to participate in an interview to assess the skills and abilities required to be an advanced care paramedic.

BCEHS uses Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) format. The MMI is based on the Objective Structured Clinical Evaluation (OSCE) tool that was successfully used for over a decade to assess the clinical skills in the McMaster Medical Education program. The applicant must deal with a variety of questions, issues, and scenarios which will rate the candidate's professional experience and scope of practice knowledge. Unlike the OSCE, the MMI scenarios do not relate to clinical practice but rather to issues about which an applicant should have reasonably sophisticated knowledge. A successful applicant will therefore be one who has a wide-body of knowledge with which to address the presented scenario and can deal with the challenges from the interviewer or situation as it develops. 

3Reference checks and criminal record check

Applicants successful in the interview process will be notified that they will have their references contacted. Individuals who are in a position to judge an applicant’s work, such as their current and previous supervisor, are required for references. You will also be asked to complete a Criminal Record Check at this time – instructions will be sent as applicable. Applicants are responsible for the cost of the criminal records check conducted by the Ministry of Justice.

4Conditional offer of employment

Applicants successful in the interview with positive references will receive an offer of employment, conditional on receiving a clear Criminal Record Check and successfully completing the fitness assessment. The offer will outline the position location, shift schedule, and start date. 

Once the job offer is accepted, the candidate will be requested to complete a fitness assessment, ensuring that they are able to meet the physical demands of the job.

5Official offer of employment

Once the candidate as successfully completed the fitness assessment and received a clear Criminal Record Check, an official offer of employment will be sent.

Entry to practice consists of a New Employee Orientation Session (NEO) which takes place in Vancouver; BCEHS will cover travel and accommodation for those that qualify.
Upon completion of NEO, the employee will then begin Advanced Care Paramedic Orientation (ACP-O). This can take anywhere from 3-6 months to complete and consists of classroom-based orientation as well as on-car experience working alongside an ACP mentor.

Upon completion of ACP-O, you will be cleared for independent practice and be deployed to your assigned station.
