Emergency Medical Services


Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) provide first-line medical or emergency care for sick and injured people. They often working in teams, must move quickly and confidently in order to assess their situation and stabilize patients in a wide variety of settings. EMTs are typically employed by hospitals, fire departments, and ambulance services.

The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program at Colorado Northwestern prepares students with the core skills and training needed to work as and EMT. It also prepares them to take the National Registry Cognitive and Psychomotor exam, which then allows the student to apply for EMT certification within most states. For those already working as EMTs, CNCC provides recertification courses and advanced training to help advance your career.

The Associates of Applied Science in Emergency Medical Services combines both the EMT and AdvancTed EMT certificate with 31 additional credit hours. This provides students with the core EMT training along with communication and analyzation skills that will help them advance within their career or pursue additional education and training.

Individual certificates include:
