Paramedics provide the highest level of care in the pre-hospital setting and are currently in high demand. Students interested in pursuing training at the paramedic level have the option of both a certificate program and an Associate of Applied Science. The Paramedic Certificate Program provides students with principles, knowledge, and skills required to practice as an entry-level paramedic, in the Emergency Medical Services realm.

The admission process for the Paramedic Certificate Program is the same as that for the Paramedic Associate of Applied Science degree .


  • Student must earn a grade of ‘C’ or higher in each course in the curriculum to obtain a Paramedic Certificate.
