Emergency Medical Services
This program is designed for students interested in pre-hospital health care, including local ambulance personnel and firefighters requiring additional EMS training. The program also seeks to meet emerging needs in our region for emergency medical technicians and to augment required paramedic training required by local fire districts. Upon successful completion of the AAS or Certificate in EMS, graduates will be well prepared to take certification state licensure exams in this health care specialty.
