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.
