Please call the Health and Human Services office at 517-483-1410 if you have any questions on obtaining department approval.

Students are required to purchase appropriate clinical attire and update their immunizations, including the Hepatitis B series. These costs are in addition to regular course fees.  The medical supplies that are needed are included in the regular course fees.

State licensing is performed through the State of Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Division of EMS, Trauma, and Preparedness.  A written and practical examination offered by the National Registry of EMT's must be successfully completed for licensure.
