Congratulations to the paramedic students in PVCC’s 2019-2020 Paramedicine program, who recently passed their national exam to become unrestricted paramedics. All 15 students passed the exam for a 100% completion rate.
“I am so proud of this group. Not only are they willing to, but also eager to face the challenges the pandemic has created head on,” said Kevin Taussig, Occupational Program Director of Paramedicine. “Our society has never had a greater need for paramedics and other emergency medical responders than it does right now. Knowing these individuals are out there rendering medical care to those in need truly warms my heart, as I know our community is safer for it.”
PVCC’s EMT and Paramedicine education programs are the most sought after programs here in the Valley. Applications are currently being accepted through May 1 for the Fall 2021 program start date. Only 24 students are selected for each session. Entrance exams will take place in May and interviews will be conducted in June.
With a proven track record of success in educating students, the program is managed and instructed by active and experienced fire service and EMS professionals. The program is nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).
