Accelerated EMT-P

Does anyone know of a fully legit EMT-P (EMT-B through EMT-P) course that takes less than 18 months and is for civilians? I've seen the 26 week course the Air Force has but I'm looking for a civilian course. I appreciate the help and info.

Anyone know of anything on the west coast side? Idaho, Nevada area fine too. I am familiar with the Colorado Mountain College program in Vail.

There was a 6 month program in Denver region through one of the hospitals there. You need to be an EMT w/ some other requirements first though.

Ah found it... http://www.sahems.org/index.php?s=146
6-10 months depending on your scheduling.

Daniel Freeman's program used to be very good, very fast paced and intense. Major exam every day, 80% or better to pass, you cannot fail any. However my information is a bit dated. Best of luck.

Not to be a dick, but BW is running into this with the putting EMT-Bs through an accelerated EMT-I course and then making them PSS-Medics. All you have is an EMT-I with no experience. 75% of the major emergencies I have been on in Iraq were medicals not traumas. Anyone can sail through a trauma, but medical emergencies require experience.

OH I seriously doubt they have any plans to stop at making EMT-I's.

Daniel Freeman is still a very good school from my experience with them. As for the testing standards, when I attended in '89, you were allowed 2 test scores below 80%. Once you got the 3rd, you got the boot. The tests were pretty involved too. I doubt you would regret giving them a look.

I like BW, but don't think this new attempt at meeting their WPPS medic contract obligations is the best thought out option, at least not from a patient care point of view. But then again I doubt the bean counters will ever find themselves on the "X" needing a good medic, so I guess they don't mind a decision based upon the bottom line.

As a EMT-P, RN, and PA-C...
I'm thinking that having someone who "rushed" through medical training as a sole provider in an Austere environment... is not a good idea.

Just sayin...

Can't go wrong with SOLO for EMT-B. It is a month long course though. I took it and even over a month it was drinking from a fire hose. They did a very good job though, good people and great food. They had (probably still do) a no shit chef on staff, the food was excellent.

The TEEX through Texas A&M has an excelerated program http://http://www.teex.com/teex.cfm?...&Course=EMS135.

Call me old fashioned but I prefer the long drawn out 2 year paramedic program that I'm on at my local community. I get plenty of clincial experience and all my Biology and A&Ps, plus an AAS. It is a lot longer but you get plenty of experience through the program.
