We are providing a hybrid delivery format for our paramedic program to accommodate the needs of working EMS professionals. This delivery model will be a combination of online and face-to-face education. The hybrid format is aimed to reduce time in class by allowing the students to participate in lectures online, on their own time. Time in the classroom will be focused heavily on skills practice, simulation training, and overall hands-on practical application of what is learned during online lecture. In addition to the hybrid delivery model, classroom time will be scheduled using the standard shift-schedule that is used by most fire and EMS agencies around the region.
Paramedic candidates must be physically fit to be able to lift and move patients are required by EMS employers.
Paramedic graduates find employment with ambulance providers, emergency departments, fire departments, and industrial safety.
EMT is the entry point for the Emergency Medical Services Profession, and is a required certification for State Firefighters, and is required for entry into the paramedic program.
Paramedic is the highest level of licensure in the Emergency Medical Services Profession. Many departments today employ only paramedics creating a demand that all-but guarantees a job to all graduates.
