I am looking for all the paramedic schools in southern california so if you guys could either post the school you went to in SO. CAL or any that you know of that would help quite a bit

i DONT recommend PTI/Daniel Freeman/NCTI in buelton
Ventura is a self taught program, but has some good field precptors
Bakersfield is pretty decent and ive heard good things about Riverside as well
and i dont know much about Mt Sac

All Paramedic programs in CA must be CoAEMSP accedited.

However, I would still stick with the community colleges since the tuition is incredibly low and the credits will transfer.

Ventura College is one of the best.

It seems like Southwestern College is a good choice:

Why not NCTI?

It is a medic mill owned by AMR. It requires no real college level A&P, offers no college credits that is transferable and is very over priced. You can get a couple of Associates (two year) degrees for the price of a Paramedic certificate consisting of a few months.

I dont really know much about Cuesta College paramedic program in SLO but it might be worth checking out.

I went through Ventura's Program and there are pros/cons as with any other place, however, one thing I should mention is it is completely self-taught.

If you have any questions about VC you can P/M as I dont want to get into it on a public forum.

I really wish I had the option of a community college and an associates. My advice is to go that route. If you can't do that then do what most other people suggest. Get some college level courses under your belt in addition to the paramedic program.
