The paramedic certificate prepares you to perform the skills of an EMT and train in advanced life support techniques, including endotracheal intubation, electrocardiogram monitoring and interpretation, DC electrical counter shock, and administration of intravenous fluids and medications.

This program offers different schedules with three admission dates per year.

Application Deadlines:

  • Spring Semester: September 15
  • Summer Semester: January 15
  • Fall Semester: May 15

In addition to performing the skills of an EMT, paramedics are trained in advanced life support techniques, including endotracheal intubation, electrocardiogram monitoring, and interpretation, DC electrical countershock and administration of intravenous fluids and medications.

The program is offered on different schedules with three admission dates per year (see the allied health admissions criteria and procedure section of this catalog).

Effective July 1, 2013, the Florida Department of Health and the Department of Education adopted the 2009 National Emergency Medical Service Education Standards for Paramedic Instruction Guidelines to replace the 1998 DOT EMT and Paramedic National Standard Curriculum. Paramedic is currently offered at the Dale Mabry and South Shore campuses.

This curriculum is from the current college catalog and is meant to provide prospective students an example of courses taken in this degree/certificate.  It is not intended to be used for graduation requirements. Students should consult an advisor for graduation information.
