EMS Education

 

Piedmont Community College’s EMS Program is approved by the North Carolina Department of Emergency Management Services and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Education Programs for the EMS Professions (CoAEMSP). This program is designed, at a minimum, "to prepare competent entry-level Paramedics in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains with or without exit points at the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician and/or Emergency Medical Technician, and/or Emergency Medical Responder levels.”

 

Piedmont Community College has not run a Paramedic course for the past three years, so at this time there is no information to report on past pass rates, retention rates, and employments rates. The College expects to post this information in late 2018 after the current course concludes.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         During the last year, many positive changes have occurred in EMS. Piedmont Community College remains committed to educating competent entry level Medical Responders, EMTs, and paramedics who are prepared to meet the needs of today's dynamic pre-hospital environment. Our faculty include experienced EMS educators and pre-hospital providers. Students will participate in an intensive program consisting of lecture and lab plus practical skills sessions and case studies. We have state-of-the-art patient simulation equipment. Students will be offered additional hours of clinical education taken place in area hospitals and in the out-of-hospital environment. Students who successfully complete the course are eligible to take the appropriate North Carolina State Exam to become certified at that level.
