These programs are offered by several institutions such as community colleges, technical colleges, private training centers, hospitals, and nursing homes.

Medics that were trained in the military as well as military corpsmen that have a total of 400 hours of work experience within the last 2 years are able to directly apply for the license exams. This is also applicable to nursing graduates who have completed their course within the last 3 years.
