Thank you for your interest in the UVU Paramedic Program. As our mission statement reflects, we are committed to providing our students with excellence in paramedic education. As the field of Emergency Medical Services and healthcare has rapidly evolved, so has the level of education. Paramedics are true healthcare professionals; often working in settings such as primary healthcare, industry, and occupational medicine, in addition to their familiar emergency prehospital settings. The UVU nationally accredited 2-semester paramedic program is academically challenging and thus requires several pre-requisites. Our Paramedic Certification and Bachelor of Science degree will afford our graduates a wide range of employment opportunities, upon completion of the program. We invite you to learn more about our exciting field!
The Emergency Medical Technician Class is the entry level course for emergency medical services, fire fighting, and most other medical fields. This course teaches the necessary skills for successful completion of the requirements for EMT Basic level certification. Successful students will be provided with the necessary in class knowledge to pass the Basic Level State Manipulative skills test and the State written exam for the specific course they have attended.
