Are you a compassionate and driven person who wants to make a positive impact in your community? Are you looking for an intense, fast-paced career that offers the chance to help people? The Aims emergency medical technician certificate program is a great way to start your emergency medical services or healthcare career.
Serving under medical oversight, EMTs are a vital part of an overall emergency response. During this 15-week, one-semester EMT certificate program, you’ll receive intensive hands-on training from experienced instructors who will prepare you for a career as a basic EMT.
However, earning the EMT certificate is just the first step toward starting your career. The EMT training program at Aims also prepares you to take both portions of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) certification exam. After that, you can register with the state of Colorado and become a practicing EMT.
If you’re interested in becoming a paramedic, earning an EMT certificate at Aims is the first step toward that goal. To apply to the Aims paramedic program, you must be a certified EMT.
