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.
