Options: Our EMS/Fire programs are designed to allow you to obtain an EMS/Fire certification prior to obtaining your associate degree. While a certification as an EMT or Firefighter allows you to start working right away, an EMS or Fire Science degree helps with initial hiring and promotional opportunities in the public safety field.

Access: As a college, our classes are eligible for federal student financial aid and a number of scholarships. Our tuition costs are among the lowest in Central Ohio.

Certification: You will need a state certification to work as a firefighter and or a state & national certification to work as an EMT or Paramedic. See Programs for more details.

Results: Our graduates are working right now at fire departments and EMS services all around Ohio and across the country.
