Tulane EMS Training

These classes and programs are offered ONLY to students who are successful candidates for Tulane Emergency Medical Services.

CPR Classes

Tulane EMS offers CPR classes through the American Heart Association at a low cost. If you are interested in becoming CPR certified, please contact us at tulane-ems@tulane.edu or 504-865-5868. We offer approximately one class per semester, but will schedule more classes if there are enough students.

EMT Classes

Tulane’s School of Medicine offers courses to become an EMT-Basic in the fall and spring semesters. These classes take place on the Uptown campus in the Tulane EMS office in Diboll. The classes will teach you all you need to know to become an EMT and guide you through the application and testing process to become nationally certified.


Tulane EMS works closely with New Orleans EMS for those patients who need the experience and resources of a paramedic service. New Orleans EMS allows EMTs to ride along on their ambulance through their VIGOR volunteer program. All Tulane EMS members are required to ride along with 911 ambulances to gain exposure to calls and to better serve the Tulane Community.
