ADMISSIONS & DOWNLOADS
The Paramedic program at Bridgerland Technical College is accomplished through continuous, sequential instruction, which progresses from simple to complex concepts and theories. Theory and skills are taught concurrently and utilized immediately, first in a simulated lab setting, then in health care facilities under the supervision of clinical faculty.
The Bridgerland Technical 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 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.
