South Bay Regional is excited to announce the introduction of its full-time Paramedic Program.  This intensive Program will be offered in a three-day, 24 hours a week format on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. The Program is comprised of three (3) sequential courses: Core, Clinical, and Internship delivered in four (4) distinct Modules including specialty certifications.

The primary goal of the South Bay Regional Paramedic Program is to meet or exceed minimum standards in preparing 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 and/or Emergency Medical Technician, and/or Emergency Medical Responder levels.

Upon successful completion on the Program, students will be able to apply for State and National paramedic licensure, as well as be prepared to apply and secure gainful employment as an entry-level paramedic.
