MSTC to Offer Evening EMT-Paramedic Program
For the City-Times
Mid-State Technical College (MSTC) will offer evening paramedic program classes starting this spring semester. The evening format is catered toward employees of agency ambulance services, volunteer and rural fire departments, and other working adults with an EMT license. Students can work during the day and attend classes during the evening.
These classes are the same core program classes that have traditionally been offered during the daytime one-year paramedic program. The major difference is that the evening program is arranged so that students will complete paramedic core courses in two years.
The evening program, located at MSTC’s Wisconsin Rapids Campus, runs January 2015 through December 2016. Classes will be held from 6-10 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Students must complete and receive their EMT license prior to registering for the paramedic program. Students are eligible to take the National Registry Exam upon successful completion of all paramedic core courses.
These paramedic core courses will satisfy requirements for a technical diploma in EMT-Paramedic. These courses can also be transferred into the Paramedic Technician associate degree program. MSTC Associate Dean Rick Anderson recommends to students who know they want an associate’s degree that they enroll directly into the Paramedic Technician associate degree program.
To apply for the EMT-Paramedic technical diploma or Paramedic Technician associate degree programs, complete an MSTC application at www.mstc.edu or visit the MSTC Campus Office nearest you. The deadline for registration into this evening paramedic program offering is Dec. 8. For additional information, please contact Tammy Kruger at 715-422-5608.
