Community Paramedicine Certification

The community paramedicine program provides specialized training to paramedics to address gaps in a community’s health care system. Community paramedics work under local medical care as part of a community-based team of health and social service providers. Seminole State’s program, offered in partnership with the Florida Department of Health, is open to paramedics who hold a Florida certification. Through the program, participants will learn to: 

  • Identify community health needs
  • Develop strategies to meet those needs and build community capacity
  • Locate reliable sources for community health issues

Community paramedicine certification can be completed in as little as eight months and is offered 100% online. Upon successful completion of the program and the International Board of Specialty Certificate (IBSC) Community Paramedic Certification exam, participants can earn up to 12 credit hours toward Seminole State’s Bachelor of Science degrees in Health Sciences or Public Safety Administration.
