Emergency Medical Services is a challenging, rapidly advancing field requiring continuous education. First responders and pre-hospital care providers must stay informed of the latest advances in technology and equipment, as well as the constant flow of new findings in medical care.

Certificate

The Emergency Medical Services–Paramedics certificate program is designed to prepare students for the National Registry for EMTs certification. The quality of the program helps establish the standard for Wyoming paramedic education. This 48-credit-hour certificate program is designed for full-time students.

The program will be offered over three semesters, and the courses are in a sequence that build on one another.
