The goal of the Paramedic Program Certificate of Achievement is to provide a strong educational foundation so future paramedics can provide the highest quality pre-hospital emergency medical care. The Paramedic Program is designed to provide students with the education and experience to perform as competent, entry-level paramedics. The program consists of a minimum of 1,258 hours of instruction, which is divided into three distinct courses: didactic/classroom instruction (minimum of 400 hours) clinical lab (minimum of 212 hours) and field internship (minimum of 646 hours). Upon completion of the program, graduates earn a Certificate of Achievement and are eligible to take the National Registry Emergency Medical Technician-Paramedic examination (NREMT-P), which is required for paramedic licensure in the State of California
