Emergency Medical Services Two

Under Development

Emergency Medical Services 2 (EMS2)

The EMS2 course is the advance course for an EMS pathway. EMS 2 is also used as an advanced course in many Public Safety Pathways.

The EMSS2 course is an extension of the basic EMS training designed for high school students as part of the Career and Technical Education (CTE) program. This advanced course builds upon the foundational skills acquired in EMS Basic Training, providing students with in-depth knowledge and advanced techniques required for higher-level roles in emergency medical services.
