2017-18 Paramedic Academy Gets Underway

Welcome to the students of the 2017-18 Paramedic Academy, as they begin training that is intense and challenging and will unfold over the next 13 months. Artful scheduling allows the students to continue working during the training. Of the 22 students in the class, 14 are already Cypress Creek Employees…12 work as EMT-Basics in the field and 2 are dispatchers in the CCEMS Comm Center.

Cypress Creek’s educational program is accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). The prior class just graduated on April 29. In addition, an EMT-Basic Class that we coordinate for area fire departments just graduated on May 20. The next class is expected to start this fall. (2017).

Here’s a little video taste of day one.

CCEMS’ Accreditation through the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) was renewed in 2017 through 2021.
