Both the Bachelor's degree in Emergency Services Administration and Applied Associates Degree in Paramedicine programs are nationally accredited by CoAEMSP. Three pathways exist to obtain a National Registry of Emergency Medical Technician's Paramedic certification. One pathway, the Emergency Services Administration Emphasis is designed for those interested in a career with upward mobility into management of public and private ambulance services. It also has a firefighting component. Another pathway leading to a Bachelor's degree is an Emphasis in Advanced Paramedic Studies. It prepares students for eventual application to professional schools, including Physician's Assistant (P.A.) and Medical (M.D., D.O.) Schools. The third way is the Applied Associates Degree which is designed to put graduates into the emergency services workforce as quickly as possible. Course work is also approved for licensure as a State of Idaho Paramedic for those that desire licensure.
The program design is based upon a cohort model. All Paramedicne classes are taken in a student's final year on campus and requires four consecutive semesters beginning each fall semester. Separate application to the program is required for admission to the program beyond the declaration of the major. Admission is competitive. Deadline for submission of applications is June 1st of each year.
