Emergency Medical Technician: Paramedic Program Application Information


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 (Emergency Medical Technology - Paramedic Certificate ) or an Associate of Applied Science degree (Emergency Medical Technology - Paramedic AAS Degree .)

  • Paramedic courses are offered at the Livonia Campus within our Health Science building.
  • 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 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 will count toward the Paramedic AAS degree and may transfer toward a bachelor’s degree at a four-year college or university. Students should work closely with an advisor to ensure the best course transferability.
