Emergency Medical Services

Emergency Medical Services is a system that provides emergency medical care.

Whether you want to acquire the EMT Basic certification or continue on and obtain the EMT Paramedic certification, Heartland and the MCAEMS have the courses that you need.

EMT courses will be offered every fall and spring semester both as a day class and as a night class. The Paramedic course will be offered every fall beginning in 2018.
