A downloadable application form is available here. Please bring it to our office when completed.


Are you looking for extracurricular/volunteering experience where you get to learn and practice hands-on life-saving skills?

Do you enjoy helping others?

Do you enjoy working in a team atmosphere?

Do you have a valid First Aid CPR Level C certificate*?

If you answered YES! to all of the above questions, you’ve come to the right place! ECSpeRT is ALWAYS looking to recruit people like you to become part of our team!

The Application Process:

1. Come visit us at our office located at Room 210K in the Student Centre to pick up an application package, which includes a Criminal Background Check form that each candidate must submit to the local police agency corresponding to his/her place of residence.

2. Fill out the application package and return it to us.

3. ECSpeRT’s Member Selection Committee will go through each application individually and determine each candidate’s suitability for the team.

4. Selected candidates will be contacted for an interview with our executive members.

5. Candidates who are successful in the interview will be accepted into the team as an observer. At this point the candidate may accompany active members on a call and provide assistance to the primary responders. Observers may not assess patients on calls.

6. Once spaces become available, observers will be enrolled in a Medical First Responder course with St. John Ambulance to learn advanced first aid skills. Observers who succesfully pass the Medical First Responder course will then become an active responder of ECSpeRT, provided that his/her Criminal Background Check clears.

*Don’t have a valid First Aid CPR Level C certificate? No worries! ECSpeRT may be offering a course soon at a discount to UTM students! Please check under Courses for more details.
