This program is designed, at a minimum, "to prepare competent entry-level Paramedics in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains with or without exit points at the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician and/or Emergency Medical Technician, and/or Emergency Medical Responder levels.”

Piedmont Community College has not run a Paramedic course for the past three years, so at this time there is no information to report on past pass rates, retention rates, and employments rates. The College expects to post this information in early spring 2019 after the current course concludes.

No graduates during the 2017 reporting year.
