Graduates of these programs will have state certification as an EMT-Paramedic, which will enable them to provide the highest level of emergency medical service available. These graduates will increase the pool of qualified paramedics available for both public and private emergency medical service providers in northeast Ohio.

The AAS in Emergency Medical Services (both options) offers both professional certification and education. It not only goes beyond providing training required for certification, but it also recognizes the amount of learning associated with a Licensed Paramedic Program. These programs enhance the skills service components with the additional critical thinking, problem solving, and cultural diversity awareness attributes of higher education.
