Emergency Medical Services Program

The Emergency Medical Services Program at the College of Southern Idaho offers training to enter the field of Emergency Medical Services. Basic Technical Certificate (BTC), Intermediate Technical Certificate (ITC), and an Associates of Applied Science (AAS) are available. All courses are approved by the State of Idaho EMS Bureau and successful graduates, who received a grade of 75% or higher in all EMSE courses, qualify to take the National Registry of EMTs Certification exams. These exams include the EMT, AEMT and Paramedic level certifications. Each plan of study coincides with a nation certification level. The BTC contains course work for the EMT certification level, while the ITC contains coursework for the AEMT course work. An AAS contains the necessary coursework to test for the national Paramedic certification.


Program Goal

The primary goal of the EMS system is to serve those in need of immediate pre-hospital medical interventions and transportation. The EMS Program and the College of Southern Idaho believe that graduates should have a strong foundation of knowledge, compassion, and professionalism.

The overarching goal of the CSI EMS Program is to prepare competent entry-level Paramedics in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains with or without exit points at the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician and/or Emergency Medical Technician, and/or Emergency Medical Responder levels.
