Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

First Responder

Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) save lives and make critical decisions by responding to emergency medical calls. Motlow's EMS program prepares you with the tools to save lives. This is a fast paced, high-energy program and we expect you to utilize those characteristics when you exit the program. EMS graduates are detail-oriented, empathetic, compassionate, and systematic, and can be authoritative and directive.

Background checks and drug screens are a requirement for training at most affiliated clinical sites. Based on the results of these checks, an affiliated clinical site may determine to not allow your presence at their facility. This would result in your inability to successfully complete the requirements of this program.
