EMTs and Paramedics

Associate of Applied Science Degree in: Emergency Medical Services

See Details

A Degree in Emergency Medical Services is designed to give an individual the skills and knowledge to enter the field as a Prehospital Provider that may lead to a supervisory position. Successful completion of the program allows the graduate to take the Wyoming State Intermediate Emergency Medical Technician licensure examination and the student will also take the National Registry of EMT’s (NREMT) National Certification Examination for the Advanced EMT. This allows students the opportunity to work within the field at these lower levels of licensure while completing the upper division course work. Few schools offer a degree track with supervisory roles in mind. Most only offer each level course for licensure purposes only. The advantage for students being licensed at an Advanced Life Support level upon graduation; they have the educational background to step into an entry-level supervisory role with only a little on-site training required. For employers, this means less training costs incurred, less time spent waiting to develop an individual to a supervisory level and in turn makes these candidates more appealing when applying for employment.

This opens up a whole wide world of possibilities for those enrolled in such institutions, revealing options previously reserved only for those that could attend traditional four-year universities. What this does is allow graduates of Western to seek out employment that may have been unattainable to them just last year. Jobs in Industrial Electrician positions, Automation Implementation Specialist positions and even Embedded Electrical Control Systems Engineering are now attainable from right here at home. Some students may even consider pursuing a career in the manufacturing industry in another region of the country.
