Education

EMS class

Medstar Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) courses are often the start of long careers in EMS, public safety, and healthcare. EMT and paramedic courses are held at several of the Medstar operating sites, and Medstar is the only EMS agency in Southeast Michigan to be accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions, the required accreditation to teach paramedic programs in the state of Michigan.

Our EMS education programs offer flexible scheduling, onsite and online learning resources, and proud history of student success and employment. EMTs completing Medstar certification and state licensure are often hired upon licensure, and EMTs at Medstar are eligible for free paramedic training (also onsite) as a benefit of employment. The starting wage for an EMT is $14.42 an hour plus benefits.
