The four semester certificate program is designed to provide those responsible for pre-hospital emergency care the opportunity to become skilled in advanced life support measures. The Emergency Medical Services (EMS/ASS) degree and the Paramedical program are accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).
Admission to this program is limited by special accreditation requirements and/or the availability of clinical assignments; therefore, students seeking admission to the program must complete application to both the college and the program. Application packets are available from the Health Admissions Office on the Warrington campus. All application requirements must be completed by the established deadlines before a student will be considered eligible for admission to this program. Minimum requirements for eligibility to the program include high school diploma or GED, satisfactory scores on diagnostic tests in reading and computation skills, and documentation of current EMT Certification. Admission to this program is based upon receipt date of completed application requirements. Once a particular class is full, the remaining qualified applicants are automatically listed as alternates for that class. If the applicant is not seated he/she is offered admission in the next available class.
