The Certificate of Proficiency in Emergency Medical Technician - Basic program is intended to deliver training that provides foundation working knowledge in information technology. The resulting certificate is independent of any degree program and can be used either to enhance whatever degree is being pursued by the student or to demonstrate IT accomplishments of the non-degree-seeking student. For the latter, the certificate incorporates a basic communications component, a Business foundation component, and a strong basic IT component.
Curriculum and certificate requirements can be found in the most current Undergraduate Bulletin.
