Careers for Certified Wilderness EMTs
A certificate from CMC's Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician program makes the great outdoors your workplace
The outdoor industry is a growth industry, and the field of medical training for outdoor professionals is in a tremendous growth phase. A huge demand currently exists for wilderness medical training, both EMT and EMS.
Organizations such as government and private land managers - especially the National Park Service and Bureau of Land Management, ecologists and foresters, guides, outdoor education counselors and outfitters are requiring a “wilderness” certification along with the pre-hospital training their employees are required to have. In addition to all of the outdoor and recreational positions, the WEMS is trained and qualified as an EMT or in EMS to work in a traditional “urban” setting as well.
