The mission of the Carroll Community College EMSParamedic Program is to educate and develop pre-hospital care providers,promote life-long learning and enhance the delivery of healthcare in theout-of-hospital setting.
The goal of the program is to prepare competent entry-level Paramedics in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills) and affective (behavior) learning domains, with or without exit points at the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician, Emergency Medical Technician and/or Emergency Medical Responder levels.
“The Paramedic hybrid program offered at Carroll Community College is one that was a lifesaver for me. When I started the program, my work schedule followed the 10-hour day/14-hour night swing shift followed by 4 days off. In the spring semester of my 2nd year, my family relocated to North Carolina. Moving 350 miles away was not an easy feat to commute back and forth to complete my education, but this is where the hybrid comes into play. While campus time is still required for mandatory clinicals, testing, etc., classes are able to be attended (remotely) through Blackboard Collaborate. The teachers are interactive with this online system as well, relaying information in a way that is easy to learn and adapt to. The lab also has up-to-date simulators to train on.” – Shaun White AAS, NRP, NCEMT-P, Carroll Paramedic Class of 2016
