Complete your degree by applying your paramedic certification and other credentials toward your Associate Degree in Paramedic. You may be eligible for a maximum of 40 credit hours that may be applied toward your degree. Earning your Associate Degree could expose you to more opportunities to advance in your career and make you more competitive for these positions. You will receive additional education to augment your current knowledge of anatomy and physiology while exposing you to ways to become a more effective communicator. The credentials and application of each student will be evaluated on an individual basis.

If you are not currently a paramedic, YTC offers training programs to get you there.
