    A National EMS Certification opens many doors, both personally and professionally. It delivers and ensures a standardized, high-level of competency and prepares you for a range of exciting new careers. The School of Continuing Studies at RWU has partnered with American Safety Programs and Training, Inc. to create an educational consortium to bring the knowledge and experience of expert instructors straight to you.

    Our EMT and Paramedic programs are offered in two formats: a traditional in-person course and a hybrid course, which combines online and in-person instruction in an extended, part-time format. You can take your courses as part of either a degree program through the School of Continuing Studies or as a non-credit certificate program.

    This partnership currently has an active letter of review by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP). If you have a question about accreditation, please contact CAAHEP directly. To learn more about National EMS Certifications, please visit the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).

    We look forward to helping you advance your career in emergency medical professions!
