Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics are on the front-line of emergency medical care, and Schoolcraft can help students prepare for a career in this fast-paced profession by earning either a certificate or an associate of applied science degree.
The Emergency Medical Technician skills certificate prepares students for employment as a pre-hospital Emergency Medical Technician, while the Paramedic certificate and associate in applied science degree enables students to qualify for positions as an advanced emergency provider. The rigorous programs include a combination of lecture, laboratory, and clinical and field internship experience to give students a solid foundation in the field of emergency medical services. Every course is approved by the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services Bureau of EMS, Trauma, & Preparedness, EMS Section.
Students successfully completing the program requirements will be eligible to take the National Registry of EMT written and practical exams. Those who successfully pass the credentialing exams will be eligible to apply for state licensure.
Credits earned in the certificate programs may count toward a Schoolcraft AAS degree and transfer toward a bachelor’s degree at a four-year college or university.
