Admission Requirements Tuition & Fees

Advanced Care Paramedics (ACPs) are vital team members of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) who provide advanced life support, medical and trauma care in a variety of health-related settings. The ACP program is an advanced care level diploma. This two year blended learning program offers students the opportunity to remain in their respective communities for the majority of their educational program.
