The EMS education staff at Blue River Career Programs is proud to offer students the opportunity to explore career possibilities in a college-level course for emergency medical services.

Emergency Medical Technician-Basic certification provides students with a solid medical knowledge which allows students to build careers in fire and ambulance services or other careers in the rapidly expanding health care field, such as in a dialysis unit, hospital emergency rooms or even industrial settings.
