Emergency Medical Services Program

Emergency medical service crews respond to dispatched emergencies and provide medical services to ill and injured individuals in situations ranging from automobile accidents, fires, and psychiatric crises to hazardous material spills and emergency childbirth. Opportunities for employment exist at hospitals, ambulance services, fire departments, colleges, and within various governmental programs.

Emergency Medical Service (EMS) courses are structured to train students as intermediate and advanced first responders and provide a continuum of training after becoming certified as a basic Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT-B). John A. Logan College also offers one EMT course to provide students with enough contact hours and training to be eligible to apply for the NREMT-B exam.

The minimum expectation goal of the John A Logan College EMS program is to prepare competent entry-level Emergency Medical Technician-Paramedics in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains.
