Big Changes in Emergency Medical Science Training at Rowan-Cabarrus

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is making big changes and improvements to our emergency medical science training. Think more offerings and more opportunities! As part of this, we’d like to introduce Mr. Paul DuPree as the new director of emergency medical services. Paul is an award winning and well rounded leader in emergency services with over twenty seven years’ experience in all specialties including law enforcement, fire, emergency medical services, public safety diving and water rescue, underwater search and recovery and urban search and rescue.

The College’s currently successful Fire/EMS Continuing Education Paramedic (CEP) certification program will provide a continuous and sustainable enrollment of students that are interested in “bridging” their CEP Certification with the Emergency Medical degree curriculum; completing the Emergency Medical Science A.A.S. degree.

Current paramedics, have you heard about our Paramedic Bridge Program?  Contact Paul DuPree for information!  Please download the program flyer.
