Wake Tech provides high-quality instruction in emergency medical care to prepare students as emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics to meet regional demand. Our students learn through intensive, scenario-based instruction and the use of state-of-the-art simulation equipment to master the knowledge, hands-on skills and critical thinking needed by EMS responders to help those in need during an emergency.
Several career pathways are available:
Both the EMS Certificate program and Workforce Continuing Education EMT course can help you receive credit toward completion of the EMS AAS degree program.
Wake Tech academic programs (credit and non-credit) that are designed to lead to professional licenses are tied to North Carolina or national certifications. If you intend to pursue professional licenses outside North Carolina once you have completed your academic program at Wake Tech, please refer to the Professional Licensure section of the college's distance education authorization page for additional information.
