Emergency Medical Services

The Emergency Medical Service programs at Jackson College offers a student a variety of pathways to choose from. The programs offer flexible classroom structures: hybrid, fully online and hands-on experience in a state-of-the-art classroom and driving simulator. The programs prepare the student to be entry-level in delivering safe, high quality pre-hospital emergency  patient care. The emergency medical technician is trained to respond to emergency calls  where they will provide efficient and immediate care to the critically ill and injured, and to transport the patient to a medical facility.

Jackson College’s programs are created to allow students to stack their credentials as they progress through advancing levels of skill in the medical pathways.
