We recognize that you have received education and have experience in the management of critically ill patients. These experiences have provided you some of the knowledge and skills that are needed to be a successful paramedic.
We also have an obligation to protect the public and only allow those who are competent to practice to take the certification exams. In order to balance these goals, we have developed a credit by exam process.
This process will allow the veteran or active duty member to demonstrate they are able to meet the competencies and cognitive objectives while not having to complete the entire program. Based upon your transcript, you will be given credit for previous learning for some classes, and will be required to demonstrate knowledge and abilities for other classes. To help you understand the expectations, we will provide you with a study guide and material for you to review. You can then test out over the course of the semester. This will save you time, money and military educational benefit. Once you have successfully passed the courses, you will be mainstreamed into our ongoing program to complete the second half of the paramedic curriculum.
Students must meet the same application requirements as our traditional students. For more information about the program, including costs, and requirements, please refer to the application packet.
