A.S. - Emergency Medical Services

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) and Paramedics are in high demand. With emergency medical services expanding in Florida and nationally and the increase in the number of older people in the U.S., opportunities in this exciting field will continue to grow. City College’s comprehensive EMS training, which includes both Emergency Medical Technician and Paramedic courses, prepares students for successful careers in this profession.

Specialized courses provide hands-on knowledge of anatomy and physiology, how to treat injuries, administering IVs, assessing patient status, bleeding control and other techniques. Students also learn how to maintain patience under pressure and develop a professional attitude.

You’ll gain valuable real-world training in emergency medical services during EMT and Paramedic clinical externships at some of the busiest trauma centers in South Florida, as well as at local fire rescue departments and ambulance services.

Upon completion of the 24-month program, which is offered at our five campuses in Florida, you will have the expertise to work as a team member at organizations including fire rescue services, trauma centers, private ambulance companies and law enforcement organizations. You will also be prepared for the EMT and Paramedic certification examination. City College’s EMT program meets the curriculum standards outlined by the U.S. government.
