BREVARD COUNTY — The Public Safety Institute at Eastern Florida State College is actively recruiting for its upcoming Emergency Medical Technician and Paramedic programs.

The deadline for applications for both programs is June 28.

In-take for Paramedics is scheduled for July 5 and EMT In-take is scheduled for July 6. Both in-take sessions are by invitation only once prospective students have applied.

Classes will begin on August 16 and run for 17 weeks through the Fall Term.

All prospective students must complete the online application for admission to Eastern Florida State College, as well as the separate online application for the Public Safety Institute.

The EMT program is designed to train individuals for entry level positions in emergency medical and first responder services. Graduates can also gain certification that will allow them to continue their education into fire service or paramedics.

The Paramedic program is designed for students to complete their EMS education by securing a State of Florida Paramedic certificate. Paramedic-certified personnel can then choose to declare their major in order to finish an Associate Degree in Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
