Emergency Medical Services

emergency medical services program at RCC

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.
