The deadline to apply for fall admission into the FVCC’s Paramedicine program is March 31 at 5 p.m.  Space in the program is limited, and complete applications received by February 15 will be given priority consideration.

In order to apply for admission into the program, candidates must have completed or be in the process of completing required pre-paramedicine courses and must possess valid National Registry Emergency Medical Technician (NREMT) certification at the emergency medical technician (EMT) level and a Montana EMT license. Candidates are subject to comprehensive background checks and may also be required to pass an entrance examination and further screening tools.

The Paramedicine program is a two-year course of study leading to an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree. The program includes both classroom and hands-on training and prepares students for careers in pre-hospital emergency medical care.

Classes are held during the fall, spring and summer semesters. Students who complete the program will be prepared to take the NREMT practical and written certification examinations at the paramedic level. Upon passing the examinations, students will be eligible to apply for paramedic licensure through the Montana Board of Medical Examiners.

Applications are available online at http://www.fvcc.edu/programs/health-care/paramedicine or outside room 126-D in the Rebecca Chaney Broussard Center for Nursing and Health Science on the FVCC campus. For more information about the program and admissions requirements, contact Paramedicine Associate Professor Kris Long at 756-3901 or klong@fvcc.edu.
