Accelerated Paramedic Program Overview: The 12-week Accelerated Paramedic Program at McCook Community College is designed to provide the required classroom training and education to develop competent Paramedics. The accelerated version of the paramedic training consolidates the didactic training in which the students attend class 40 contact hours per week for 12 weeks. Upon completion of the in-class (didactic) studies, students are required to complete a minimum of 230 hours in a Clinical environment and 200 hours of Field training. Once successful completion of all three 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 students. 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.
