^^It looks like I was talking to myself but I swear I wasnt. Someone's comments disappeared

Anyway, we all know EMT-Is or AEMTs that did the hybrid course. All book work online, then hands-on requirements with the provider

Does anyone know of a provider with a hybrid course all the way to EMT-Paramedic?

I'd like to do all my schoolwork abroad and come stateside to do all necessary hands on requirements. Is this even possible? I hope there is a solution for this.

Otherwise I'd have to take an entire year of work to go to ftct that has the one year paramedic program, all on their campus

Thanks in advance

With accreditation requirements, online programs are even harder to come by these days... not to mention, I, among others continue to question the validity of these programs due to inadequate skills preparation because there is not immediate practical application of didactic material. This is even more near impossible to achieve with NREMT movement to training program based skills portfolio rather than simple check-offs.

All of that being said, there was at one time in the recent past a hybrid program offered online from a college/company in Texas. Can't think of the name though.

Found it. $6k. Advertises classwork completion in 3 months.

Note: I am not endorsing/advocating this product. My personal official stance is that entry education in EMS, especially at the advanced level, should be done in person.

Forgot to mention, looks like you can CLEP test out of the first part of the program if you have experience. For an additional $500.

Anytime I start seeing things like that, I tend to question stuff even more (i.e. money mill).

Good luck.
