Emergency Medical Services

Overview

Emergency Medical Services classes offered through our Workforce Development & Continuing Education division provide individuals with the knowledge skills, and attributes to provide medical care from the First Responder level to the Paramedic level. Graduates of these programs may be eligible to take the state and/or national certification examination. Employment opportunities include fire departments, emergency medical services, clinics, urgent care centers and hospitals.

“The Sampson Community College Paramedic program has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP Executive Office). This letter is NOT a CAAHEP accreditation status; it is a status signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation Standards through the Letter of Review Self Study Report (LSSR) and other documentation. Letter of Review is recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for eligibility to take the NREMT’s Paramedic credentialing examination(s). However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.”
