ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Central New Mexico Community College has launched a new paramedic program aimed at getting graduates into underserved area.

The school announced Tuesday that the new Community Paramedic certificate program is expected to graduate its first class this spring.

Under the program, students must have paramedic licenses and have been working in the field for a minimum of three years. Students will receive certificates of completion in community paramedic after 21 credit hours.

Officials say all classes will be conducted online with face-to-face labs on the weekends.

According to a 2010 report by the National Women's Law Center, New Mexico ranks 49th in the country for medically underserved areas.
