Paramedic, A.A.S.


Return to » Programs of Study Return to: » Programs of Study

Paramedic training is delivered through a combination of classroom instruction (didactic and psychomotor skills) and a blend of clinical field experience. Upon successful completion of the Paramedic courses with a “C” or better, students are eligible to sit for the National Registry’s written and practical examinations.  Upon successful completion of those examinations and other licensure requirements, the student will be eligible for the State of Tennessee Paramedic license. The paramedic renders basic and advanced life support to patients at the scene of their injuries or illnesses and continues this treatment while transporting these patients to the hospital.
