HCC offering new paramedic program

Hopkinsville Community College will offer a new four semester paramedic program that will prepare students to sit for the National Registry Paramedic Exam.

That exam is required for students to work in the field, according to a news release, and HCC is partnering with Madisonville Community College to best serve the region. The program has space for 16 students and is selective admission, requiring students to be EMT certified and complete several prerequisite courses prior to being admitted into the program. Interested students must complete a separate application for the paramedic program.

Director of Allied Health Dr. Beth Beverly says the courses will be a ‘flipped’ model, which will allow for face-to-face interaction mixed with independent study online.
