What Happened to the Paramedic Curriculum?

Because of changes to the new Advanced ECG Interpretation Boot Camp with its drastically reduced fees for EMT-P's, it was felt that a separate two-day course for paramedics costing more than the Advanced ECG Interpretation Boot Camp would be superfluous.

Paramedics can now attend the full Advanced ECG Interpretation Boot Camp for just $799.00. We award AMA PRA Category 1 credits, so check with your licensing institution for acceptance of the credit.
