Arkansas State University-Beebe offers both Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and Paramedic Level Training on the Searcy campus through the Emergency Medical Services Program. The coursework for this program prepares students to challenge the National Licensure Exam and begin a career in the field of EMS. Career opportunities available to EMS professionals include, but are not limited to, ambulance services, hospital emergency departments, urgent care and family practice clinics.
Currently, there is a nationwide shortage of qualified EMS providers. This shortage allows graduates of ASU-Beebe's EMS program numerous job opportunities not only throughout Arkansas, but throughout the country as well.
Classes are offered during the week (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday) at night. ASU-Beebe offers the only 10-month, night-time paramedic course in the state. EMT classes are offered each Fall (August) and Spring (January) and last one semester. Paramedic cohorts begin in June of each year and are completed in July of the following year.
