There are EMT training programs all over Wyoming 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 Wyoming Department of Health, Emergency Medical Services Program, 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 Wyoming. 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) along with having a CPR certification. Lastly, applicants must also pass an approved and licensed training course.
