Paramedic Program - Initial TrainingEmergency Medical Technician –Paramedic (EMT-P)Emergency Medical Technician –Paramedic (EMT-P) is the highest level of pre-hospital care. Paramedics are trained members of the health- care community often responsible for bringing life-saving diagnostic and treatments to the patient at the scene of an emergency. The Paramedic has extensive training in pre-hospital pharmacology, advanced patient assessment, advanced airway and cardiac management, trauma management, and the pathophysiology and management of shock. The scope of practice of the paramedic is rapidly expanding thus creating a number of new employment opportunities. Our nationally accredited, 1,200 hour, 16-month long Paramedic Program is maintained and supported by clinically experienced EMS Educators and Paramedics. Our Clinical Coordinator organizes the intensive clinical and field rotations at over 50 hospitals and ALS EMS services across New England. Graduates of our program are eligible for 34 college credit hours with Granite State College or 35 credit hours with New Hampshire Technical Institute.
