EMS Education at Weber State
Paramedic Application - deadline May 15 of each year
(Early applications encouraged)
The paramedic program at Weber started in 1974. At that time it was the first in Utah and one of the first in the nation. In the 1980's, Weber became Utah's fist nationally accredited paramedic program and again one of the first in the nation.
Why Choose Weber?
The paramedic program has an exceptional first attempt pass rate on the National Registry Paramedic Exam. In the initial seating, 97% of the Weber graduates pass, leading all other Utah programs and significantly exceeding the national pass rate of 71%.
One of the reasons for the great success of the program is our faculty. All three full time faculty are National Registry Paramedics with significant field experience. Two of the three full time faculty possess master's degrees with the third working on theirs. With the exception of AHA algorithms, the program does not teach "protocol." We believe paramedic success comes from higher order learning to include assessment based management, use of differential diagnosis and problem solving.
