This program prepares students to sit for the National Registry for EMT-Paramedic (NREMT-P) licensure exam, which is currently required to practice in most states, including Maryland. This is a selective admission program intended to serve firefighters (paid force or volunteer) in the State who meet minimum requirements and maintain an affiliation with a fire station. The format will allow students statewide to complete non-clinical work at institutions close to home, clinical didactic courses as a hybrid online/on-site lab combinations, and clinical affiliation with local emergency services. This is a selective program with the following requirements for acceptance and continued enrollment in the program (see the Selective Admissions information, also found at the beginning of the printed catalog, for complete information):

  • Current EMT-B certification
  • Current affiliation with a fire station, and
  • Completion of any required transitional work (ENG-097/ELL-095, MAT-099, READ-099)

* EMS-101, EMC Systems and Rescue Operations, is open to any student who has met the academic and certification requirements for acceptance to the program and has access to turn-out gear. All 100-level courses must be completed prior to any 200-level courses. Other prerequisites may be required. See course descriptions for information. Students must maintain an overall 2.000 GPA and earn a grade of “C” or better in all science and clinical courses.
