EMS and Paramedic Training
What is EMS?
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is a system that provides emergency medical care to a patient who has sustained an illness or injury and requires medical care and/or transportation for further care. That transportation may be local, or to another region, if needed, by whatever vehicle gets the patient where they need to be.
EMS providers are trained medical professionals with multiple levels of training. While the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) is the most common, our community is also served by Advanced Emergency Medical Technicians (AEMT) and by Paramedics, who are the most highly trained prehospital care providers.
EMS providers make a difference in our communities, one patient encounter at a time.
Urban or rural, commercial or civic agency, EMS providers all started their careers with that first class. We're pleased to offer that first class and proud to offer every course you'll need in your EMS career.
