What's New in Emergency Medical Services

Upon completion of the in-class (didactic) studies, students are required to complete a minimum of 230 hours in a Clinical environment and 300 hours of Field training. Upon successful completion of all training components, the student will then be eligible to sit for the National Registry Paramedic Exam.

Clinical/Field Training components are not part of the 12-week Accelerated Paramedic program at McCook Community College. Clinical/Field training placement is the decision of the student. Students are encouraged to use our clinical training facilities and field service affiliations to complete their training. If a student opts to return home to complete their clinical/field training the college will work diligently with their chosen affiliations to attain training contracts, but there are no guarantees these agreements can be secured.
