The prerequisite General Education classes for the Associate of Applied Science degree program are comprised of many different disciplines that make the paramedic better rounded and should enhance career mobility. It is strongly recommended that the student complete as much of the General Education requirements as possible before starting the technical paramedic classes. Prior to starting the paramedic program, the student must have EMT or AEMT certification or be finishing a course that would allow the student to obtain EMT or AEMT certification early in the paramedic program. Students typically start the paramedic technical classes during the second year of school. Technical classes are provided on a block scheduling system (finish one entire class before starting another). During this phase of the AAS completion, the student will have classes almost every day for the entire year or year and a half for the 18-month program. Please note that the schedule above is for the 12-month paramedic program; other schedules add approximately one semester to the timeframe of completion.
