How to Join our Team

The College of Charleston EMS is always looking for motivated, dependable people to join our team. Any College of Charleston student certified as an Emergency Medical Technician Basic (EMT-B) or above is encouraged to apply. Those without prior training are encouraged to contact the EMS Compliance and Training Coordinator for information about becoming certified.

If you are currently certified as an EMT in another state we can help you complete the required steps for reciprocity in the State of South Carolina. In most cases all that will be required is an application and background check. Those without current NREMT certification or with credentials that will lapse in the following 3 months may be required to retake the written examination.
