Paramedic AAS

This program is designed to provide National Registry Paramedic certification training for paramedics to meet the employment demand of regional fire departments. The certification courses will be offered as non-credit through Workforce Training and then transcripted for credit once completed. Students completing these courses may then take the General Education Core to complete the A.A.S. degree. Applicants who possess a current National Registry licensure are also eligible for transcription of these paramedic credits to fulfill the program requirements. See the program plan for the major requirements. 

Completion of a Technical Skills Assessment is required.
