Overview

This is a one-year course on knowledge and skills needed by an Emergency Medical Technician to continue their education in order provide advanced life support care of the ill or injured patient. The curriculum follows guidelines approved by the Ohio Department of Public Safety, Division of EMS, and meets terminal objectives for the entry-level paramedic as outlined in the National Emergency Medical Services Educational Standards. 

The Program will begin each March with Anatomy and Physiology. Those students who have completed A & P will begin classes in May, and student transcripts can be evaluated by the WDC Program Coordinator for May admission. This is a 30 credit-hour program and is an integral part of the EMS Associate degree program. Students completing this training may apply all credit hours earned to the Associate degree and continue their education towards graduation. The Paramedic classes, when taken as part of the Associate degree pathway, are Financial Aid eligible. This Program is held at the Colerain Township Fire Department Training Center, in conjunction with the Colerain Township Fire Department Training Division and results in earning a State of Ohio paramedic certification, as well as a National Registry certification. Graduates of the Paramedic certificate program are required to successfully pass both a written and practical National Registry exam in order to obtain their State of Ohio certification.
