I'm wanting to become a paramedic but I want to move to the US in the near future. I have looked online and talked to a few colleges in the states about taking an EMT course but they all say that I can't without a student visa which from my understanding I need at least an associates degree to qualify for. Is there a way to take the course in Canada and move to the states afterwards? Is there a program in the states that can transfer my Canadian education to US scope of practice? right now, I'm thinking my only way of becoming a paramedic in the states is to get a green card but I'm hoping for another way.
