Successful completion also meets eligibility requirements for the National Registry of EMTs Advanced Emergency Medical Technician examination process. Successful completion of selected course work also satisfies the academic, clinical and field internship requirements for prospective certification with National Registry of EMTs as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).

A grade of C or higher is required for satisfactory completion of all courses in this curriculum.
