EMS PARAMEDIC PROGRAM
The EMS Paramedic program prepares the EMT Basic to provide skilled and safe emergency care in a variety of settings. Gogebic
Community College offers two options to complete the Paramedic Program—Certificate and Associate of Applied Science programs.
This is a one-year program for current EMT Basics to complete their Paramedic program and apply to take the licensure exam. The
State of Michigan approves the program. The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) accredits Gogebic Community College.
All applicants must meet admission requirements. Students currently enrolled in an EMS Basic program or current EMT Basics may
apply for the Paramedic program. Students need to complete pre-requisite courses for admission to the program. In the last five year
period, students must have completed Anatomy and Physiology or take it concurrently in the program. They may also need to assess in
math and English. Applicants without the necessary college background should meet with the Allied Health Coordinator to plan a
General Education-EMS program to prepare them for eligibility for the EMS Paramedic program.
All Allied Health Students have additional requirements. Clinical sites require criminal background checks. Applicants need to be aware
that any history of misdemeanor and/or felony conviction or past abuse may make them ineligible to meet clinical and program
requirements. The state to which the graduate applies for licensure makes this determination regarding eligibility for licensure.
CERTIFICATE PROGRAM – 1.5 years
Students entering into the program are required to be certified EMT’s prior to acceptance.
