Due to the COVID-19 emergency situation affecting colleges/schools, our San Diego County Paramedic Accreditation workshop will be taught through an online platform (ZOOM). Please make sure you are familiar with Zoom and have it downloaded prior to the date of the Zoom workshop. The instructor will reach out to you with more information a week before the workshop date and he/she will send you the ZOOM link to the course. The workshop is an 8-hour course . Payment instructions will be emailed out to you a week prior to the workshop date. Due to the current situation, we are only accepting mailed in checks to our Cashier’s Office at the moment.
