Through the Public Safety program, we deliver training in the areas of Emergency Medical Services, Fire Services, and Law Enforcement. Students are able to obtain certifications that lead to initial employment or advancement.
Students in these courses qualify for tuition waiver based on affiliation with an authorized volunteer, municipal, county, or State organization. All courses must support the organizations’ training needs.
The Emergency Medical Service Program provides certification in CPR, First Aid, Medical Responder, EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) Basic, Intermediate and Paramedic. Courses are available to rescue squads, ambulance services, fire departments, and law enforcement agencies. CPR and EMT re-certification classes are also offered.
