This program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and competencies required to administer emergency pre-hospital care. The emergency medical technician -- intermediate (EMT-I) certificate program is designed to prepare graduates to work as cardiac rescue technicians (CRTs) at the intermediate level. The emergency medical technician -- paramedic (EMT-P) certificate program is for those with a CRT certification. If you are already certified as a paramedic, you could earn your associate degree in a year or less by successfully completing general education courses and college graduation requirements.
Because the EMT-I and EMT-P programs are limited admission programs, you must apply and meet all of the requirements outlined in the emergency medical services admission information packet. Since there are only 32 spots in the EMT-I program and 32 spots in the EMT-P program, you might not be selected even if you meet all of the requirements. EMT-I classes start in the summer and EMT-P classes start in the fall. Students who want to register for EMS 101 and/or EMS 151 can do so without completing program admission requirements.
Wor-Wic's emergency medical services programs are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).
