The EMT Program consists of EMS 121, 122, 123, 124 (11 credit hours) and EMS 170 (1 credit hour). These classes provide the tools you need to become a state certified EMT. Taking these classes is the first step to getting into the field of EMS and becoming a paramedic.
The EMT program provides the knowledge and skills required to deliver emergency care to a sick or injured patient. To apply to most Fire Departments in Colorado, these classes must be successfully completed. After completion, you must take the National Registry EMT written exam. Upon successful completion of this exam, you may apply for Colorado State Certification as an EMT.
