EMT is offered as an independent, one term course. No other college courses are necessary to successfully complete this course. Successful completers are eligible to take the National EMT exam.

Also note that state EMT licensure is required to apply to the second year of the program. The AAS degree in Paramedicine is required in Oregon to become eligible to take the National/Oregon EMT-Paramedic exam.

For students pursuing the Associate of Applied Science degree in Paramedicine, Lane also offers a Certificate of Completion created to assist students in transferring to another Oregon community college offering the two year paramedic program.

Community colleges that accept the Certificate of Completion are Lane, Umpqua (Roseburg), Rogue (Medford), Central Oregon(Bend), Chemeketa (Salem) and Portland Community College.

There is no application process for the following first year courses: EMT175, EMT196, EMT169, EMT170 and EMT171.

What was the on-time graduation rate for these students?
