  1. I am extremely interested in the next Paramedic Prep course that will be offered. I was wondering if I could obtain information on the up coming course including; the times and days of the week the courses will be offered.

    I am currently working as an E.M.T. and I am interested in pursuing a career in para medicine. I am extremely interested in this opportunity. I am inquiring at numerous schools with great reputations. Thank you ahead of time!
