Frequently Asked Questions

To register for EMT courses, you will need to come to the EMS Program office located on the Jamestown Campus, Public Safety Building room 237 to fill out a registration form. Please bring a copy of your high school diploma, college diploma, or transcripts that show you have graduated high school because this is a mandatory requirement. You will then be directed to the cashier's office for payment. If you do not have a high school diploma, you will be required to take the TABE test prior to registration.

Though having a medical background prior to enrolling in any EMS class could only help, it is not necessary to have previous medical experience. You will learn what you need during the course.
