“The program is built so that students can complete it in just seven weeks, which is about half the time in other programs,” said Dr. Jeff Ziomek, DPA, EMT-P, EMS Program Director. “This is a non-credit program that gives students the knowledge and training they need to advance to becoming a paramedic.”

The EMT program allows flexibility because clinical and internship requirements are scheduled for evening hours and weekends. The program is $4,500, which includes tuition and CPR Certification. There are additional costs such as the uniform and textbook.
