Piedmont Virginia Community College will hold two information sessions for its emergency medical services (EMS) program in March.

PVCC offers several program options for emergency medical services training including an A.A.S. degree and three career studies certificates, which prepare students to become paramedics and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) at the beginner, intermediate or advanced levels, and allow current National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians – Intermediate (NREMT-I) and Virginia Certified EMTs to enhance their skills and credentials.

Information sessions will be held on Tuesday, March 6, and Wednesday, March 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. each day. Both sessions will be held in the Keats Science Building, room K106, on PVCC’s Main Campus at 501 College Drive in Charlottesville. Attendance is required at one of the sessions for any new student interested in pursuing the EMS program beginning with the fall 2018 semester.

The EMS information sessions will discuss the EMT to paramedic program curriculum, the intermediate to paramedic curriculum, clinical requirements and degree and certificate program options. The information sessions will include a question and answer session, as well as a tour of the PVCC EMS lab and simulation equipment.
