Hello Alonso. The requirements to become a paramedic vary from state to state and from school to school. In California, students generally have to complete an EMT basic training program (which takes anywhere from 6 months to 2 years.) These programs are offered by community colleges, technical institutes and in some cases, four year colleges. In California, students also have to pass an exam in order to get certified and complete a certain amount of hours of training.
