What will I learn?
Our EMS program will prepare you to enter the field of emergency medicine. We offer three levels of EMS education: Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Advanced Emergency Medical Technician and Paramedic. EMT is the entry-level program and the course will teach you the basics of scene size-up, patient assessment, and patient treatment.
Having an EMT certification is a requirement for advancing into the next levels of EMS.
The Advanced EMT has an expanded scope of practice with additional medications, assessment and treatment. The Advanced EMT program is open to those who are currently certified EMTs in Colorado and has an expanded scope of practice with additional medications, assessment and treatment.
The program requires a background check and drug screen before admittance.
To enroll in the EMT, EMT-Intermediate, or Paramedic programs, you must be at least 18 years of age, have all current immunizations, and be able to meet the requirements of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment EMTS Division Functional EMT job description.
