  1. Where do you find out what is required to apply to the paramedic program?

    • You can visit the Paramedic Page of our web site and the requirements and prerequisites for the Paramedic Program are listed.

  2. Is the EMT and paramedic programs only offered for persons interested in becoming an EMT or Paramedic? Can I take either of these courses as general interest and as part of CERT training in my community? Thanks!

    • The EMT courses and Paramedic program are not only offered for who are going to be utilizing the certification. Anyone who wants the knowledge can register for our courses pending they meet all prerequisites.

      However, EME does teach the courses as if all students will be continuing a career in EMS.

  3. As long as the Anatomy and Physiology course offered contains Anatomy AND Physiology, is three units or more, and the college is accredited.

    Please can contact our Life Sciences Dept. to see is they will accept it as well. 760-744-1150 X2275
