All prospective students must complete the online application for admission to Eastern Florida State College, as well as the separate online application to 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 in fire service or paramedics.

The Paramedic program is designed to help students complete their EMS education by securing a State of Florida Paramedic certificate. The Paramedic certified personnel can then declare their major in order to finish an Associate Degree in EMS.
