Emergency Medical Services Professions

Emergency Medical Services


Program Summary

The Hill College EMS Professions prepare students to care for people in the pre-hospital setting as an Emergency Medical Technician-Basic or an Emergency Medical Technician-Paramedic. EMTs and paramedics provide life support to patients and emergency medical care with an ambulance service or specialized service. They may work in an emergency department or a fire department, but most importantly, the certification is aimed at providing care in the pre-hospital field.

Students can choose from several different program options, including certificates and an associate of applied science degree. Successful students are eligible to apply for the National Registry certification exam as a part of obtaining their EMS certification or license. National Registry information can be found at www.nremt.org.

Hill College is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to help students get a jump start on their careers. With hands-on, state-approved curriculum, students are given experience exceeding what a classroom can teach.
