Program Overview

The Collins Career Technical Center in Ohio offers a Paramedic program for individuals interested in becoming a paramedic. This program prepares students to provide advanced pre-hospital care, including advanced life support and transport, to critically ill or injured patients. The curriculum covers various topics, including anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, medical emergencies, trauma management, and more. Students receive both classroom instruction and hands-on experience in real-life simulation scenarios to prepare them for a career as a paramedic. The program is full-time and typically takes 12 months to complete. Upon completing the program, students can take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) certification examination to become certified paramedics. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the median annual wage for paramedics was $49,500 in May 2021, and job growth for paramedics is projected to be much faster than average for all occupations.
