CTE Emergency Medical

The EMS program was created in conjunction with the North Central CTE to enable high school students to obtain work-ready skills. 

This one-year course is ideally designed for seniors in high school, although juniors may also sign up and complete the course in one year to gain certification. High School students must be attending a high school that is either part of the North Central CTE, a ten school, four county cooperative: OR if home schooled, must live within the school district of one of these schools. In addition, if a student attends a high school outside of the North Central CTE district which does not offer this program, a student may also apply. 


The EMS curriculum follows NREMT/IDHS a national program taught in accordance with state and national guidelines. Upon completion, students will earn high school credits for graduation and can receive additional dual transferable college credit at no additional cost to the student. Additionally, participants will submit clinical rotations for real life experience. The skills obtained will help springboard their career path. It will prepare them to enter the workforce or to seek advanced training opportunities to continue to perfect their technique and skills as EMS professionals.
