Are you an EMT-I 99 who is planning on going on to paramedic certification? PCC offers an EMT-I to EMT-P bridge course which recognizes the skills and training you have already received. By allowing credit for your previous training, we can decrease the time needed to obtain your paramedic education.
This course includes review of Fundamentals and Trauma, while fully covering Medical Emergencies, Pharmacology, Cardiology and Special Considerations. After successfully completing the didactic materials, clinical rotations and a 500-hour internship, you will be eligible to take the NREMT Paramedic certification exam. This program can also count toward an AAS degree.
To be eligible for this program, you must be currently certified as an EMT-I 99 in Colorado, or have the program director’s permission. You must either be NREMT certified, or you must pass a pre-course test to show minimum competencies. Current immunizations, drug screening and a background check are also required.
