You can become an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)

As an endorsed education center, Gunnison Valley Health Paramedics are proud educators for the EMT-Basic (EMT-B) certification and Advanced EMT (AEMT) certification. These certifications are offered once a year, typically in the spring or fall, and the course duration is approximately 15 weeks. Classes take place two nights a week with alternating Sunday sessions incorporating lab and skill development activities. This time commitment has proven beneficial to our students as we boast an average of 98% first pass rate with the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) certification. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for course details.

We also offer EMT recertification / refresher classes once a year to validate the continued competency of registered emergency medical services personnel. Over three days, the refresher classes encompass all the curriculum necessary to submit for NREMT recertification.
