Emergency Medical Services is an Associate in Science program that encompasses two occupational opportunities, Emergency Medical Technician and Paramedic. This can be done in units, EMT/Paramedic with general education units as the completion.

The EMT certificate program requires one semester and this prepares the student for certification and employment in accordance with the Department of Transportation curriculum and the State of Florida EMS/Department of Health rules and regulations.

The Paramedic certificate program is three consecutive semesters. In order to apply to the Paramedic program a candidate must be a Florida licensed EMT.

All general education classes may be taken before or concurrently with EMT and Paramedic classes or after the Paramedic unit of this A.S. program is completed. Paramedic courses must be taken in sequence.

Transfer students seeking an A.S. degree in Emergency Medical Services will only be awarded credit hours for paramedic training if the paramedic training was completed at a CoAEMSP accredited program.

Transfer students: Twenty-five percent of total credits must be taken at CF in order to be awarded a degree from CF.
