Paramedic

These courses are designed solely for individuals who have credentials as a TN Advanced Emergency Medical Technician and are looking to further their EMS careers into Paramedic. Individuals seeking admission should contact the Division of Health and Wellness.

Students will have to complete an application process for the Paramedic program. This includes filling out an application for the Paramedic program, completing an AEMT knowledge based test and an interview. Students will be required to meet all health and safety guidelines of affiliating agencies, including a urine or blood drug screen. Students will be required to undergo a criminal background check prior to clinical internship. If, as a result of a required criminal background check, a student is prohibited from a clinical affiliate agency, the student may be dismissed from the program.

Upon successful completion of the Paramedic program, which is a three-semester program that starts in the fall semester and is completed the end of the summer semester, students will be eligible to take the National Registry Exam, which leads to National Registry certification as a Paramedic and licensure in Tennessee as a Paramedic.

All interested individuals will be assigned class space as available. Students must maintain a current card denoting successful completion of a Professional Healthcare CPR course while in the Paramedic classes. Students will be required to undergo physical exam/health verification. Students will be required to wear a uniform to class as well as the clinical experience.
