What Our Alumni Said

“I really appreciate what the program has done for me. After completing the EMT program, I was able to work two jobs: one as an onsite medic, and another as an ALS right here in Sacramento.

I am now in medical school in the top of my class, in many leadership positions, and looking to pursue a career in surgery. Keep doing what you are doing. You all are making a difference in people’s lives.”

The Hybrid Paramedic program requires different qualifications from the standard Paramedic Program. Please read the Requirements tab below to see if you qualify for this program. 

The Hybrid Paramedic Program is designed to accommodate full-time EMS employees who want to obtain a paramedic certification with accommodations for their work schedule.

Students complete a substantial portion of their education through reading and additional self-guided means, then reinforce the reading by attending class less frequently than a traditional program.
