Emergency Medical Technology
Do you have what it takes to save a life? Our emergency medical technology paramedic certificate will prepare you for employment as a pre-hospital emergency medical provider, while our associate degree program helps you take it up a notch and qualify for an associate in applied science degree. A combination of lecture, laboratory, clinical, and internship experience will help you fulfill all training requirements. Students achieving an 80 percent or higher in required courses will receive a certificate of completion and be eligible to test for state licensure. Students should note that they will be required to purchase liability insurance, which is valid for one year.
- Every course offered is approved by the Michigan Department of Community Health EMS and Trauma Systems Section.
- Completing all courses and passing the related national exams results in the eligibility to serve at any level of emergency medical services, anywhere in Michigan.
- Credits earned in the certificate program may count toward a Schoolcraft AAS degree and transfer toward a bachelor’s degree at a four-year college or university.
