This course has been developed to meet and/or exceed the standards as set forth in the National
Emergency Medical Services Education Standards. The course builds upon the foundational knowledge of the Emergency Medical Technician and provides additional breadth (amount of material) and depth (level of detail) of knowledge necessary for the paramedic to practice in today’s workforce. In addition, the course integrates experiences from outside the traditional 911 (emergency) role of paramedics to facilitate entry into other areas of paramedic practice including community-based paramedicine, interfacility transport, and specialty/critical care transport.
How the Course will be Delivered
Our course is designed to be user friendly and accomodate the working student. We meet on Fridays for a full day of class. The course will combine methodologies of teaching and learning including:
- Online interactive forums, homework
- Research and evidence based presentations
- Didactic lecture
- Small group exercises, skills task training, simulation
- Clinical experiences (required 1 day a week minimum once clinicals begin)
- Other assignments and projects
A large portion of the course will require the student to have some computer proficiency. At a
minimum each student should have basic knowledge of personal computers, word processing,
internet browsing, and email

Advanced placement for other allied health professions may be available based on an individual review of their experience, certification, or license.
