These courses are designed to bridge the licensed health profession to the Paramedic Certification. Registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and respiratory therapists are eligible to take this course. All candidates must have a minimum of two years clinical experience, preferably in a critical care setting, EMT-Basic certification from the state of Ohio, ACLS, PALS or PEPP, TNCC, BTLS or PHTLS and an AHA BLS Health Care provider certification or its equivalent prior to enrollment.

Students completing the Allied Health Profession to Paramedic Certification courses will be able to challenge the NREMT Paramedic Exam and meet the certification standards set forth by the Ohio Board of EMS and perform all duties of an EMT-Paramedic.
