KCC Paramedic Program Kingsborough Community College


The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Emergency Medical Services is Brooklyn’s first college-based Paramedic Program. The KCC Paramedic Program is currently under the auspices of the Nursing Department. The course of study leading to the AAS degree takes at least two years, with paramedic education beginning in the fall semester of the second year. Additional classes may be necessary to complete the AAS degree.

Advanced standing in the AAS degree is possible for current Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Paramedics. New York State EMTs will receive 6 advanced standing credits for their technical education and skills. New York State Paramedics will receive 36 advanced standing credits for their technical education and skills.

Not everyone is cut out to be a paramedic. But if you are willing to put the time, effort and sacrifice, our EMS faculty and staff will work to encourage and support you in this exciting career path. Our faculty and staff are academically prepared to teach and are seasoned, experienced paramedics. KCC’s Paramedic Program also has a state-of-the-art Simulation Center including the latest high fidelity manikins for your training benefit.

Explore this exciting opportunity to join the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) field and become the highest level of healthcare provider outside of a hospital. As a paramedic, you will be responsible for patients in critical conditions and YOU can possibly make the difference between life and death.

The KCC Paramedic Program is located in V Building, room V101. This may be the right choice for you! Email or call us to make an appointment to discuss this new opportunity at KCC!
