Paramedic • AEMT • EMT • EMR
Key Program Features
The sirens sound … paramedics or emergency medical technicians (EMTs) are on their way to the scene of an accident or to assist someone stricken by a sudden illness. A person’s life depends on the emergency medical personnel’s quick response, decision-making ability and precise medical care delivered under extreme pressure. LLCC Emergency Medical Services prepares students to provide prehospital emergency medical care. Students train in LLCC’s state-of-the-art indoor ambulance simulator to master handling real-world situations. EMT, advanced EMT (AEMT) and paramedic courses have a clinical portion. Clinical time is done in and out of the hospital.

Paramedic Program Accreditation
The Paramedic program is a current candidate for accreditation by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP) and has received the following Paramedic program letter of review:
The Lincoln Land Community College Paramedic Program has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP Executive Office). This letter is NOT a CAAHEP accreditation status, it is a status signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation Standards through the Letter of Review Self Study Report (LSSR) and other documentation. Letter of Review is recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for eligibility to take the NREMT’s Paramedic credentialing examination(s). However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.
