Emergency Medical Science (EMS)

The Emergency Medical Science (EMS) Program is designed to prepare entry level EMS providers  with the appropriate skills and knowledge to deliver high quality care to those experiencing an illness or injury. Students will study topics such as advanced airway procedures, pharmacology,  cardiology, pediatric emergencies and trauma emergencies in both the classroom and clinical  settings. Upon graduation, students will be eligible to take the North Carolina Office of EMS  (NCOEMS) Paramedic examination.

For those already credentialed as a Paramedic, the EMS Bridging Program will offer a way to bridge  their prior Paramedic education to an AAS degree.

Please contact the Lead EMS Instructor with any questions.
