A current EMT Basic National Registry and/or State certification is a prerequisite to enrolling in the Paramedic program. Additional prerequisites consist of completing online courses in Medical Terminology, Anatomy & Physiology and ECG Made Easy, prior to enrolling in the Paramedic Program. This intensive course is designed for the serious student who can devote full time to coursework, clinical, and study time. Transfer students will be required to take a skills review prior to the beginning of the paramedic modules.
Clinical Rotations scheduling will vary and can take place in the week day mornings, evenings and on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays concurrent with the paramedic courses. The Ambulance Internship consists of a minimum number of documented patient contacts for various types of illness and injury and varies in length depending on the volume and acuity of the agency, but averages about 6 weeks in length. Graduates receive a certification of completion for EMT Paramedic, which is required to take the National Registry EMT Paramedic practical and written exams.
