Our program is designed to meet the educational and training needs for those individuals who strive to obtain national and state credentials as EMTs or paramedics.
The EMT-Paramedic student is introduced to knowledge and skills while attending evening classes on the ASU-Searcy campus. The student uses the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom, while completing clinical hours with area hospitals and ambulance services.
