C2.5109B (42 credits)

The Paramedic certificate is a combination of classroom, laboratory, and hands on learning experiences offered through hospital and on-ambulance clinicals. The certificate is designed to be completed in 12 months. Upon successful completion of the prescribed courses, the student will be eligible to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technician Paramedic written and psychomotor skills examination.

The WNCC Paramedic program has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP). This is not a CAAHEP accreditation status; it is a status signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation standards. The Letter of Review is recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for eligibility to take NREMT’s paramedic credentialing examinations. However, it is not a guarantee of eventual accreditation.

The CoAEMSP Executive Office can be contacted at 8301 Lakeview Parkway, Suite 111-312, Rowlett, TX 75088 or by calling 214-703-8445 or at coaemsp.org.
