Program Overview


We also offer an Advanced Standing option, which enables eligible practicing paramedics to pursue the Baccalaureate of Science Degree in Paramedicine while offering them college course credits for their experience. To be eligible, individuals will have earned a transferable Associate’s Degree, have a current national or state certification, and graduated from an approved training institution to thus enter into the EMS Paramedicine Degree Program in the second year. The Advanced Standing option is delivered entirely online and is detailed on a separate page (see Advanced Standing in menu at left).

Central Washington University EMS Paramedicine Program has a long history of maintaining high academic standards and skill requirements for our graduates that often exceed both state and national minimum standards for paramedic programs. This translates into a very busy, very intense year of learning, both in the classroom and in the field. This level of academic rigor prepares the students not only for successful completion of the national certification exam but for a rewarding and accomplished career as a professional paramedic.
