It is the mission of the Paramedic Academy to provide our students and the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) professions with an educational program that is as state of the art and dynamic as the services they perform.

It is our vision that in order to provide students and the EMS community with an educational format that is progressive, we will need to utilize the resources set forth by various institutions, such as the National Association of EMS Educators and the Committee on Accreditation for the EMS Professions. We will pursue the challenges in maintaining continuous accreditation. With constant evaluation of the student / instructor performance, we can deliver an educational model that is continuously improved.

In an effort to comply with the recommendations of the Joint commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, all of our clinical partners /  healthcare facilities and agencies utilized by the College for clinical training require that each student undergo and pass a student background check prior to participating in clinical rotations. Each student, at his/her expense, is responsible for acquiring the student background check report and authorizing the submission of results to the college.

No student will be permitted to participate in a clinical rotation until the results have been received, reviewed, and accepted by the program director or their designee. Failure to submit to and pass the required student background check will result in the student being terminated from the respective program.

Students accepted into the paramedic program, will be required to have a physical examination, a chest X-ray and/or PPD, lab tests, required immunizations, and a criminal background check. These are required in order to comply with the program and clinical agencies’ contractual requirements. Also, the following items are required: a current American Heart Association CPR Certificate and liability insurance (certain limits apply). Most Health Sciences programs have a group policy available, or the students may purchase their own policy. All of the above will be completed at the student’s expense. These items will be completed, with copies submitted, well in advance of the clinical rotations. Not submitting the required documentation by the due date will prevent the student from successfully completing the program.

Details regarding these requirements will be explained in detail at the appropriate time during the program .

It is always recommended that students considering a career or transfer for an advanced degree in health careers meet with Melanie Dube-Price, VVC Counselor. Contact the Counseling Department for an appointment. Walk—in appointments are also available during certain times of the semester. She can be reached at (760) 245-4271, Extension 2205.
