There are paramedic training programs all over the state of Montana which specialize in teaching how to treat injuries or other medical emergencies for transport and stabilization to more central care centers. These training courses are regulated by the Montana Department of Human Health and Human Services Emergency Medical Services and Trauma System, which is also in charge of all emergency medical technicians and paramedics. EMTs and Paramedics across the state are comprised of a number of paid and volunteer positions.

There are three levels of emergency medical technician / paramedic in Montana. In order to become a full paramedic, one must have already been approved as an EMT B (basic) or EMT I. This requires being at least eighteen years of age, a high school diploma or GED, and passage of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians Exam (NREMT). Lastly, applicants must also pass an approved and state licensed training course.
