National EMS Institute / New England Paramedic Education Consortium Paramedic Training Program

Paramedic Training Program Reviewed

National EMS Institute and New England Paramedic Education Consortium’s Paramedic Program provides education for the highest Advanced Life Support (ALS) prehospital level provider. Candidates in this course undergo over nine (9) months of classroom training in advanced anatomy & physiology, pharmacology, neurology, endocrinology, electrophysiology, and subject matters related to advanced patient care. The paramedic candidate must also do an in-hospital internship with physicians and nurses to hone their assessment, critical reasoning, and treatment skills. They also must operate in the field under a paramedic preceptor to ensure that the student has mastered their trade. Candidates spend 18 months to two (2) years to complete their training and take their national computer exams and practical skills exams. Additional certifications that candidates receive during this class are Advanced Cardiac Life support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS).
