    Any one that is on the fence should do this. It is a awesome medic program with a good scope. You work hand and hand with Harborview which has some pretty cool pre-hospital stuff going on!

    An interesting thing with that program is that you come out a King County paramedic, but aren't necessarily recognized as a paramedic by the state, which I've heard can cause some headaches if you ever want to leave. But anyway, supposed to be one of the best EMS systems in the country.

    They do not take the NREMT-P test either.
    But really, hard to imagine someone going to work as a medic somewhere else, with the pay/benefits they get they are tough to beat.
    Of course, we do

    If you take a few extra classes "before" and "after" your training you get a bachelors degree.

    Can't wait to get 3 years under my belt so I can start testing for them.

    And I don't really think any organization would really care that you "don't have a cert" if you came from KCMO. But I have been wrong in the past.

    It is a good program to work for and I am sure you can find a way to get a NREMTP cert along with it. Something can always be worked out on the back end and being close to a Bach degree is something that is phenom. If I still lived in WA I would be all over this. You are at the tip of the spear that is EMS and EMS innovation.

    Passing the National Registry is graduation requirement of the University of Washington Paramedic Training Program which KCM1 paramedics go through.
