    This is an absolute scam guys. Anytime you look at something that advertises the path of least resistance, you should run the other way. Even if this was not a scam, such a program could not produce a good entry level provider IMHO. You are lucky to roll out of a conventional nursing program with enough competence to function as an entry level provider, let alone something like this. Look at all the threads about new grads struggling to learn the ropes, and you really want to consider taking shortcuts? Path of least resistance = FAIL IMHO.

    To the person talking about 12 week paramedic programs, I hope you are kidding. While they do exist, producing a competent entry level paramedic would be difficult if not impossible for some people in a 12 week time frame. In theory, you can cram the 1,000 hour or so recommendation (DOT NSC) into 12 weeks; however, to say this produces a good paramedic?

    Here is the link. Its actually pretty interesting. http://www.mpcc.edu/Accelerated_EMT-Paramedic.html The big question I have regarding this is finding an ambulance service to do ride time and clinicals. I think programs like these are around to push firefighters thru the system as quick as possible.
