Emergency Medical Services Professions
Emergency medical personnel are on the front lines of medicine, providing patients
in need with life-saving care. Be a part of that mission with a degree, certificate
or award in Emergency Medical Services Professions. Collin’s Emergency Medical Services
Professions program will provide you with a foundation for careers in emergency medicine
and other related health care fields.
This program has three options: The OSA – Emergency Medical Services Professions prepares students for entry-level positions. Students completing the Certificate – EMS Paramedic are well positioned for higher paying jobs. Completion of the AAS – Emergency Medical Services Professions degree will benefit students seeking promotion in the EMS field.
This program prepares students for skills proficiency verification by the training program medical director; and written and practical exam administered by National Registry. A licensed paramedic has an associate degree (or higher) and tests on the same skills for EMT-Paramedic.
