1 year certificate program
1 year clinicals and ride a longs
Paramedic school is no joke and requires a lot of self-motivation and drive. Before entering school, you must get your EMT certificate (offered each semester) and apply for program admission. Selected students will spend a full year in classroom, skills labs, fire department ride-alongs, and hospital clinicals. The Capstone component of the program is completed at large Advanced Life Support Services in the Lower-48 where the candidate spends 2-3 months in a working internship with licensed paramedic educators performing all of the skills of a paramedic.
The entire course takes approximately a year to complete the paramedic certificate, or a little longer if you are going to complete your AAS Degree in Paramedic Technology.
Median Annual Wage $40,000 – $63,000
