    Hello, Tamberly.

    The paramedic program is approximately 10 months long as long as the student begins the field internship portion on time. We have had some minor setbacks in the past with finding internship spots in the county.

    If you complete the program successfully, you will have earned an A.C.L.S. card, PHTLS card, and P.E.P.P. cards and a course completion record to give to the State of California for certification.
