NAEMT Supports Paramedic Transition Training Programs for Military Medical Personnel

Jun 13, 2014

NAEMT issued a Position Statement in support of the development and funding of military medic to civilian paramedic transition programs. These transition programs will allow active duty and veteran military medics to incorporate their military medical training as a significant portion of their civilian paramedic training. They will also provide returning veterans with good paying jobs, meet the significant demands of both military and civilian environments, and result in hundreds of experienced paramedics each year in a much shorter timeframe than traditional paramedic education programs.
