EMT Program at CMC Leadville

The EMT Basic program at Colorado Mountain College in Leadville is a six week course beginning on August 25th and ending on December 10th. The program sets an intense pace and is broken up into three parts taken concurrently: EMS 145 (7 credits Lecture), EMS 146 (4 credits Lab), and EMS 170 (1 credit Clinical).

EMS 170 requires 30 hours of clinic experience, usually in an emergency room, and one day of field work, usually on an ambulance.  EMS 145 is a hybrid lecture course involving a balance of “live” classroom sessions and on-line course work directed by the instructor.

Students who earn a “B” or better in all courses will receive a Colorado Mountain College Certificate of Occupational Proficiency and will be allowed to take the National Registry Practical and Written Exams as a  necessary step to attaining Colorado EMT Certification.
