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 science degree.
The paramedic certificate prepares students for employment as a pre-hospital emergency medical provider, while the associate in science degree enables students to qualify for a job as an emergency provider. The rigorous programs include a combination of lecture, laboratory, clinical and internship experience to give students a solid foundation in the field of emergency medical technology. Every course is approved by the Michigan Department of Community Health EMS and Trauma Systems Section.
Students achieving an 80 percent or higher in the required courses will receive a certificate of completion and be eligible to test for state licensure.
Credits earned in the certificate program may count toward a Schoolcraft AAS degree and transfer toward a bachelor’s degree at a four-year college or university.
