Advanced Placement Policy

PERCOM and its cooperative programs do not believe that students who have completed other training opportunities should automatically have to “redo” work. Based on that premise, there may be times when the Coordinator or Program Director may choose to grant advanced placement for existing licenses, certifications, or completed courses by students from other approved programs, educational institutions, or military programs.

Any credit granted will require verifiable documentation provided by the student or through student acquisition methods to be placed in the student’s file if he/she is accepted into the PERCOM EMS Academy.

Not ALL “proofs” will be accepted as meeting the standards set by state and national authorities, or by the PERCOM administrative staff. PERCOM reserves the right to approve or deny any request for advanced placement for any specific portion of training for any reason.

Review and possible approvals are approached on a case by case basis.
