APPLICATIONS ACCEPTED MARCH 1ST THROUGH APRIL 15TH FOR FALL ADMISSION.

The purpose of this program is to elevate, through a rigorous training program, entry level Basic Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) to the classification of Paramedic (EMTP).

The program is specifically dedicated to nurturing basic attributes in the EMS field: intelligence, self-awareness, the ability to relate to people, and a capacity for reasoned judgment under stress. The curriculum addresses these qualities through classroom lecture, in-hospital instruction, and direct patient care aboard an Advanced Life Support vehicle during a supervised field internship.

After fulfilling the requirements outlined below, graduates are qualified to sit for both the Arkansas State and the National Registry Paramedic Exams. This program exceeds the standards set forth by the U.S. Department of Transportation EMS-Paramedic guide and the Arkansas EMTP Training Site requirements. Individuals with this level of training commonly are recruited by ambulance companies in both the public and the private sector and due to recent state legislation, in hospital emergency departments.

To apply to our EMT program, you submit an application via email or U.S. Postal Service. The application can be downloaded from the left column, under the navigation menu.

The number of hours dedicated to paramedic instruction is approximately 1430.

Instructional time for this portion of the training is structured such that a prospective student could maintain a full-time job while enrolled.
