About EMS Education & Training

The core philosophy behind EMS Education & Training is based on the synergy between tradition and innovation.


We believe in using technology to our advantage while adhering to the original pillars and values of our organisation.


Since opening in 1988, we’ve always been committed to improving. Whether it’s simplifying operations or making courses more straightforward, we do everything possible to create the best learning environment.

Since that time, pre-hospital emergency medical care has continually evolved and improved. Today, EMS professionals are acknowledged as bonafide members of the health care team.


Excellent training programs have been developed and a vital focus has been placed on continuing education.


National standards have been established.


Ambulance equipment essentials have been set. 


National accreditation of paramedic programs has been achieved, and professional EMS associations have been organised.

Through every change, EMS Education & Training has remained steadfast in upholding its mission to provide a valid, uniform process to assess the knowledge and skills required for competent practice required by professionals throughout their careers.

EMSET has done what was necessary to establish, implement and maintain uniform requirements for the certification and recertification of emergency medical technicians, event medics, paramedics, nurses and other health practitioners.
