Program Code: FS175

Emergency medical services (EMS) has undergone a great expansion in the last 10 years. There has been a shift from volunteer agencies to full-time agencies that not only respond and treat emergencies but play an active role in injury prevention. With this shift, the demand for educated EMS personnel has grown significantly.

The EMS program is designed to prepare individuals for a wide spectrum of careers including fire service, hospital emergency department technicians, physicians’ offices, or clinics. For registration information, contact the EMS coordinator at (815) 280-2356.

Total Required Hours: 71.5 Semester Hours


The EMT-B course (EMS 201  and EMS 209 ) and the EMT-P courses (EMS 215 , EMS 216 , EMS 217 , EMS 218 , and EMS 219 ) are complex courses that require a great deal of studying; therefore, the student should put these courses as a priority.
