Paramedic Program Begins September 2019. More Info Coming Soon!

The Paramedic program is currently undergoing transition to a hybrid course. This will provide students with the opportunity to complete a portion of the theory classes online, a portion in the classroom, and some a combination of both. Due to this transition and planning period, the next paramedic program will not begin until September, 2019. The application for the 2019 program will be available Spring 2019.

The admission criteria and prerequisites will not change. If you are interested in becoming a paramedic, review the information in "Getting Started" and contact LCSC Workforce Training at 208-792-2388 if you have any questions. We will update with specific information as it becomes available.

A Paramedic is an advanced health professional whose primary focus is to provide advanced emergency medical care for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical system. This individual possesses the complex knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation. Paramedics function as part of a comprehensive EMS response, under medical oversight. Paramedics perform interventions with the basic and advanced equipment typically found on an ambulance. The Paramedic is a link from the scene into the health care system.
