MERIDIAN, Idaho — A paramedic school shut its doors last Tuesday leaving students with a lot of questions.  Guardian college of Meridian teaches students courses on paramedic training in preparation for paramedic certification.  The owner says the school is certified to graduate students for course work  to pass an exam students need to get a job.  

Students say they were told the college would shut down and the school would not graduate their class. "They told us doors are closing on Tuesday this will be your last class. and I was shocked. I didn't know what to do," Taylor Burkhardt said.

Shutting down the school caught students off guard. "I wasn't very happy about it obviously. I put all that time and money, $16,000 into the program. This is a career I want to pursue. This is my dream job. it was disheartening," Travis Hall said.
