EMT and paramedic training is the first step in any emergency medical services career. Mobile Medical Response provides thorough hands-on training, whether you find your calling as a paramedic or go on to become a registered nurse, physician’s assistant, or EMS director. Paramedic training is available to licensed EMTs who want to take their education a step further. Paramedics who graduate from our training provide exceptional emergency, pre-hospital care to people in need in their community.

MMR offers a range of pathways for students to get the training and education they need to work in Michigan emergency medical services. Our paramedic training includes online courses, flexible school schedules, and courses in multiple locations, including Saginaw and Mount Pleasant. Even with tuition reimbursement and payment plans, courses can be a substantial expense, which is why MMR offers paramedic training scholarships for qualified students.

I was riding a shared bike around home for some street photography fun around 6pm. Stopping by a rather interesting angle for some panning practices, a newer police van was spotted. The photo makes me feel cinematic editing instantly. It’s like police officers heading to their typical night shift as if any other night. However, there is something suspicious happening up front.

How much is paramedic training in Michigan?

Paramedic training courses build upon what students learn while getting their EMT license. Our course is approximately fourteen months, with hybrid instruction including online courses for convenience, plus one day a week of lab work at either our Saginaw or Mount Pleasant locations.

The tuition for paramedic training is $6,000, with an optional payment plan of $2000 due at registration and the remaining $4,000 due in four equal payments at the start of each quarter. Additional costs include textbooks, drug screening, and testing for licensing.

What does a paramedic training course include?

Paramedic training provides licensed EMTs with advanced instruction in pre-hospital care, including respiratory, cardiovascular, and drug therapy. The fourteen-month course divides 1197 didactic and clinical course hours evenly.

Students improve their medical knowledge and skills while honing their ability to react and manage emergency situations through hands-on training.

Am I eligible for a paramedic training scholarship?

Mobile Medical Response has a set of requirements that all scholarship applicants must meet, separate from the course admission criteria. These requirements ensure scholarship recipients are committed to a career as an EMS professional working in various capacities with Mobile Medical Response.

Before applying for a paramedic training scholarship, applicants must:

  • Have or are pursuing an EMT license
  • Are or will be 18 years old by the time of the training
  • High school diploma or GED
  • No felony arrests or convictions
  • A valid Michigan license in good standing

As long as applicants meet these requirements, they are eligible for the MMR paramedic training scholarship for $1,400 towards EMS course tuition.

What do I need to apply for a paramedic training scholarship?

We provide our paramedic training scholarship application online, so it’s easy to fill out and submit. Some documentation is required, along with the completed form:

  • A one-page essay about your goals and influences inspiring your EMS training
  • A letter of recommendation from a teacher, employer, or mentor––not a friend or family member
  • Complete an interview with the scholarship selection committee

Our paramedic training courses occur throughout the year, and our selection committee holds interviews in March, April, June, July, October, and November.
