The Community Paramedic Certification (C-PC) Exam, developed and administered by the International Board of Specialty Certification (IBSC), is designed to validate the competency of paramedics who are providing services beyond the traditional roles of the emergency care paramedic. This online course focuses on the application of community paramedicine concepts and critical thinking necessary to do well on the NCCA-accredited Community Paramedic Certification (CP-C) Exam.
