Public Safety Training

EMS Education

While many 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.
