About Us

We Are EMS

The work of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) professionals is both noble and personally satisfying.  Emergency medical responders (EMRs), emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics, provide life-saving medical care, comfort, and transportation to people in their time of need. 

To stay current on the ever-expanding knowledge and skills required of EMS professionals, the most advanced and comprehensive education is essential.

At the School of EMS, we’ve been providing the highest level of education for over 30 years.  Our educators have years of experience in 911 environments and are respected industry leaders.  We strive to bring a personal element into the classroom and are dedicated to helping students succeed personally and professionally. We are proud of our graduates, their high pass rates on the national exam, and the positive reviews they receive from their employers.

I was a student at the School of EMS in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and graduated in 2018. When I started school, I was very nervous and unsure about myself. The instructors at the School of EMS have very high standards in regard to what they expected of us which in return made us ready for what was thrown at us in the real world. I have and will continue to highly recommend the School of EMS to anyone looking at a career in EMS.

Having the opportunity to work for and be a part of an organization like the School of EMS has been an honor. The standards that are held by the school for the students and instructors definitely reflect in the field.

Our department was faced with staffing issues and rising overtime costs to compensate for students attending traditional Paramedic certification courses.  With the School of EMS’s flexible online courses, I have been able to reduce overtime and hold on to staff allowing them to continue working while becoming Paramedic certified.  I am thrilled with the results we have seen and am looking forward to sending my next group through.  It has been well worth the investment and due to the flexibility of the program, I have been able to cut costs.
