EMT Advanced Life Support - Paramedic

Training Authority for EMT-Advanced Life Support - Paramedic

The Mississippi Community College System offers Paramedic programs throughout the state of Mississippi. The Board of Health - through regulations - sets guidelines and minimum standards to establish a minimum level of training for the advanced level EMS Provider. These are required to be met by all Paramedic Programs in the state.

Requirements for entry into the Paramedic Training Programs

To be accepted in to a Mississippi Paramedic Training Program, each applicant:

  • Must be a Mississippi certified EMT
  • Must successfully pass a re-test of EMT skill and knowledge
  • Must provide past academic records for review by an admissions committee.
  • Completion of eight semester hours of anatomy and physiology (A&P I, II with Labs) from an accredited post-secondary school. A minimum average of C or higher must be obtained. These may be taken as prerequisite or corequisite courses.
