The online paramedic program is a web-based hybrid program that adheres to the National EMS Education Standards and the National EMS Scope of Practice model.
Live Online InstructionThis program varies from a typical self-paced online program, as students sign into a virtual classroom for live, interactive lectures with an instructor during the scheduled class times. The web-based didactic portion of the program typically runs 10 months.
Skills TrainingStudents who choose our local online program will complete their practical skills training on-site through the didactic portion of their program. Distance students will complete this portion of their training during a 12-day intensive bootcamp at the end of the didactic portion of their program on our West Bridgewater campus.
Clinical InternshipsFollowing the skills training, clinical internships help students acquire valuable experience in diverse practice areas. You will be required to complete a combined total of 200 hours in the Emergency Room, OR, ICU, CCU, PEDI and OB.
Field InternshipsFinally, students are required to complete a field internship, including 300 hours of ride time and 50 Team Lead patient contacts.
Upon completion of online paramedic training from National Medical Education & Training Center, you will be eligible to take the NREMT certification exam.
