Before you complete the pre-registration process
The pre-registration process is for students, new hires and active-duty paramedics. If you are returning-to-work following an absence from the workplace, please contact us.
To complete the pre-registration process you will need a valid credit card. Candidates must submit credit card payment information at the time of pre-registration to secure their testing day and time.
The cost of the testing is: $312.50 + 40.62 (HST) = $353.12
PRE-REGISTERING FOR YOUR OPPAT™ TEST
Candidates must pre-register for their OPPAT™ test. Please use the following link to access the pre-registration portal https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=13334613
Please note – your pre-registration appointment is ONLY a placeholder and is NOT the date/time/ location of your actual confirmed scheduled test. The pre-registration request form will take 3-5 business days to be processed, at which time your appointment status will be changed to “waitlisted” or “confirmed”. Confirmed scheduled appointments will contain the date/time/location of your actual scheduled OPPAT™ test. After you pre-register for an appointment, please complete the required forms and prepare for your testing appointment. If you have further questions, consult the FAQ.
Please check your inbox for an automated message from email@example.com regarding information for your confirmed appointment. You may also need to check your spam and trash folders, depending on your spam filter settings.
OPPAT™ testing is offered at two (2) locations: the Ottawa Paramedic Service and in Waterloo at Wilfrid Laurier University.
