Klamath Region Opportunities
RCC and Klamath Community College (KCC) have partnered to provide an opportunity for students in Klamath County to more easily access paramedic education. See our Klamath Partnership web page for more details.

Working during the Paramedic year
This is an intensive full-time program and we strongly discourage students from working full-time while attending. While many students do work while attending the courses, the clinical and course demands and attendance requirements are heavy, and will require a flexible work schedule and significant dedication from students.

Required Items

Full details regarding specific requirements will be provided after acceptance into the program. Requirements will include:

  • Approved uniform shirts, pants, boots or shoes, & belt
  • A tablet computer or compact laptop. The ability to connect to the internet through a cellular connection is critical during the field internship phase.
  • Textbooks: The list of required texts is updated frequently and every effort is made to minimize the expense for students. In addition to a paramedic textbook and an ECG/12-Lead text, the current editions of the ACLS, PALS, and PHTLS books will be required.
