Cuesta College’s Central Coast Paramedic Program will graduate 15 of its students on Friday, September 6. The students and their faculty, along with family and friends, will celebrate the successful completion of their year-long training on Cuesta College’s San Luis Obispo Campus in room 5401 at 6 p.m. Guest parking will be available in lot 2 during the ceremony.

Two students, Sean Buczynski and Brian Merrill, were selected by their classmates to be student speakers at the 7th annual graduation ceremony. Steve Lieberman, director of the Emergency Medical Services Division for the County of San Luis Obispo’s Public Health Department, will be the keynote speaker. Additionally, for the first time, the newly created Dave Melendy EMS Recognition Award will be presented. The award recognizes excellence in the emergency medical services field.

The Central Coast Paramedic Program prepares students to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians-Paramedic (NREMT-P) licensing exam, which is required to become a licensed paramedic in California.
