We understand the financial and scheduling impacts on students from COVID-19 as they push towards their endeavors of completing  EMT, AEMT, and Paramedic education at Rogue Community College. CPR certifications, immunizations, and TB testing is still available during these trying times.
Attached is a document that includes information on costs, locations, and options to complete the below application of choice safely and at the best possible cost to you! Please reach out to Rusty Riis if you have any questions on the applications of each course.


RCC provides realistic hands-on training which prepares students for both national certification and Oregon licensure testing, and more importantly, helps them to be successful in EMS. Students are routinely presented with challenging scenarios using manikins or live actors, and they learn how to provide excellent medical care using state-of-the-art EMS equipment.

Our highly experienced EMS faculty stay current in EMS best practices and training to ensure excellent instruction. Partnerships with area hospitals and ambulance services provide outstanding clinical opportunities for students to observe and participate in actual emergency care.

EMT or Paramedic: Which job is right for you?
