Learn to save lives. The Emergency Medical Services program is designed to prepare students to be knowledgeable, competent, entry-level, pre-hospital care practitioners.
The Emergency Medical Services program is offered in partnership with Tidewater Community College. Tidewater Community College's Emergency Medical Services program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).
Students who successfully complete program requirements and attain national or state certification as a paramedic are prepared to enter the workforce and provide advanced emergency medical care in areas such as hospitals, re-rescue-emergency medical services organizations, military, volunteer services, and other fields that require emergency services and/or for patients requiring emergency medical services.
