Become a Wilderness Emergency Technician at CMC

Get Started with the Wilderness EMS Certificate

The wilderness program is an upgrade for current EMTs or RNs who wish to specialize in backcountry work

As a Wilderness EMT student, you must hold and provide proof of a current EMT-B or higher certification or RN license to enroll in the Wilderness Upgrade course. You must demonstrate college-level proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics before entering this program. Your skills in these areas may affect the sequence of courses in which you can enroll and may also extend the time required to complete this program.

This Emergency Medical Technician program has certain physical and academic standards which you will be required to meet before you are admitted to the EMT program. Students accepted into the college’s vocational programs must be physically, mentally, and emotionally self-supportive with reasonable accommodations. If there is a concern about meeting the physical and academic standard, students need to contact the Disability Services who will determine the student’s ability to participate in this program.
