The TMCC Paramedic Program is designed for the student who desires education with a career goal as a paramedic (Emergency Medical Technician, Paramedic-EMTP).
A certificate of completion will be offered upon completion of the curriculum and successful passing of the National Registry Exam. The certificate of achievement from TMCC will be awarded after the student has completed all program and certificate requirements. This is a 12-month continuous program.
The paramedic curriculum meets all requirements as outlined in the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Paramedic National Standard Curriculum. Students who choose can pursue the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Paramedicine.
The traditional paramedic program is a year-long program that starts in the fall of the year. This program is the traditional in-class course with the didactic/classroom portion completed in person. The didactic portion runs Fall and Spring semesters. The clinical and internship experience will be completed after the didactic portion has been completed. This program is ideal for those who are successful in the classroom environment with hands-on instruction and skills.
