Advancing Paramedic Education

The Ohio Department of Health, The Paramedic Foundation, and the Paramedic Network offer this Lottery as an opportunity for EMTs, AEMTs and Paramedics to attend a Refresher or Bootcamp without cost.*


If you are an Ohio EMS practitioner, please make sure you complete the form, answering all questions. The State of Ohio sponsors the lottery for Ohio practitioners, whether resident or working for an Ohio program or provider.


If you are a non-Ohio practitioner and/or a member of the Paramedic Network interested in the lottery, please answer all questions. We will be in contact with you for best options.


If you have an interest in attending with start dates other than January, please note this in your application for consideration.

“You Decide” EMS Refresher, CP Bootcamp, CCT Bootcamp

* If you win the lottery, our expectation is you will attend. If you decide you are not able to participate, let us know or you will owe the registration fee. We have a waiting list and all practitioners deserve this opportunity.

* By clicking the “Submit” button below, I certify that I work for an Ohio EMS agency that serves in whole or in part a rural area of Ohio. I understand that I will be placed in a pool with other EMTs, AEMTs, and paramedics that are also similarly qualified through which a system will be used to randomly choose from all the applicants so that a total of 150 will receive a free, non-transferrable registration code for a paramedic refresher course delivered by the Paramedic Network and The Paramedic Foundation. I understand that The Paramedic Foundation will determine the specific method by which paramedics will be chosen randomly and agree to hold The Paramedic Foundation, Paramedic Network, and the Ohio Department of Public Safety Division of EMS harmless in regard to the specific method used and the selection of individuals who will receive the free registration code. The tuition support for this program is HRSA-funded through the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility Grant Program.
