28 Graduate from Ocean County College/MONOC Paramedic Program

Wall, N.J. -- Last night, the formal graduation ceremony was held for the 35th Ocean County College/MONOC Paramedic Program.  From this most recent didactic class, 28 students graduated and will now move onto complete their final hands on clinical rotations.  Once students complete this required training, they will sit for their State and National Paramedic exam.  When certified, Paramedics will go to work at one of the 21 Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU) Paramedic programs located throughout New Jersey.

Agnes Galiano, Paramedic Program Manager, said “I am immensely proud of everyone here and all of the hard work they put in to get to this point.  They are the future of EMS in New Jersey.”

The Ocean County College/MONOC Paramedic Program is one of only four Paramedic training programs in New Jersey and out of those four, one of only two programs to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).  As of January 1, 2013, programs without this accreditation are not being allowed to send their graduates to the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians test which is needed to work as a Paramedic in the state.
