Reminder a separate EMALB exam needs to be completed within the year to be a licensed EMR in the province.
Advantages to the EMR are it never expires. All you need to do is maintain patient contacts and continuing medical education credits.
Huge advantage to the EMR is once licensed you are able to take the Paramedic in Industry class and obtain an OFA 3 certificate in 4 hours!!!
