Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

NDSCS-Fargo and Sanford Health EMS Education at F-M Ambulance have teamed up to offer two-year degree and certificate options in the field of Emergency Medical Services (EMS).


Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics are often the first to respond to an emergency medical incident. People’s lives often depend on the quick reactions and competent care of paramedics and EMTs. It’s a high-pace environment that is always changing, but offers diverse challenges and big rewards.

In the NDSCS Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program, you’ll receive hands-on training from professional staff at Sanford Health EMS Education at F-M Ambulance that prepares you to enter the workforce with confidence.
