Century College is known for high-quality programs and degrees taught by expert instructors.
The Century College Emergency Medical Service (EMS) program began in 1972 with Minnesota's first state-approved EMT program, and the following year, we offered one of the region's first paramedic programs.
The Paramedic Fire Science degree at Century College is unique - integrating the roles of emergency medical services and firefighting into emergency response practice. It is an innovative, flexible degree option with a significant portion of the classroom education delivered through online learning.
Paramedics possess the highly skilled techniques of advanced life support and emergency care procedures. The Paramedic program major meets the criteria for the education of paramedics as recommended by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
