EMT and Paramedic Training
The College was notified following a site visit from the Ohio Department of Public Safety Division of Emergency Medical Services that national registry exam pass rates for the EMS Program are below minimum standards. As a result, the program has been placed on probation through Jan. 31, 2026. The program continues to be accredited during this period.
