Students with the discipline and drive to successfully complete our programs, earn eligibility for both state and national licensing exams, and find employment with leading agencies across the Nation.

If you are currently a paramedic please meet with our Department Coordinator, Deb Disko, to review your prior college transcripts and build a personalized course map detailing what you need to get started. In most situations, if you went to an accredited paramedic program, your paramedic professional classes will be fully accepted regardless if it was a degree program or not. We will also review your other general education classes to determine if you meet all the pre-requisite coursework to successfully begin junior level classes.
