Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Education

EMS Education

Do you want to add Emergency Medical Services (EMS) training to your chosen major? Whether to make you more marketable in your field or to allow you to serve on the mission field or as a volunteer in your community, Cedarville’s EMS education program can help you achieve your goal of serving others as an emergency medical provider.

Cedarville University offers two non-credit Emergency Medical Services (EMS) courses through its Continuing Education:        

  • Emergency Medical Training (EMT)
  • Advanced Emergency Medical Training (AEMT)


  • Both courses will give you fundamental skills and intense training to prepare for the National Registry Exam and become certified to provide emergency care in a pre-hospital setting. Our students’ pass rate is 80% on the exam.
  • Along with in-class sessions, you will take part in hands-on, real-life simulation exercises.
  • After successfully completing the coursework and passing the National Registry Exam, you may take your certificate to the Office of the Registrar and receive 3 transfer credits toward your Cedarville University degree requirements.
