The students are being trained here through funding from Houston-based Aramco Services Co. ASC is a wholly owned affiliate of Saudi Arabian Oil Co. The students will take some introductory courses, such as English as a second language, before beginning Paramedic courses in Fall 2005 with other first-year Paramedic students. After earning their associate’s degrees from Penn College, the students will work as paramedics in the emergency room of Saudi Aramco’s 500-bed facility in Saudi Arabia. Penn College has provided paramedic training for Saudi Aramco-sponsored students for the past four years.
