West Hills College Lemoore seeks students for paramedic program

From West Hills College Lemoore

West Hills College Lemoore’s Paramedic Program is now accepting applications for new students for its August 2015 start date. The yearlong program offers students the opportunity to earn an Associate of Science Degree or a certificate of completion.

“Our paramedic program prepares our students to be entry-level paramedics by rapidly introducing evidence-based prehospital care and high-level thinking,” said Ralph Herrera, Paramedic Program Coordinator and Lead Instructor. “We continue this amount of high-yield education throughout the program and this ultimately improves patient care at the end of the day.”

Over the course of the year, students learn about EMS systems, workforce safety and wellness, EMS communications, and about common illnesses and emergency situations. They also learn to perform emergency procedures and about vehicle extraction and special rescue.

To qualify for the program, students must have pre-requisite classes in anatomy, physiology and English and must also have their EMT1 state issued license or National EMT license.

An application for the program is available in the Health Careers office on the WHCL campus. The application deadline is Aug. 7 by 3 p.m.
