About Us

EMSTA College is a private postsecondary school and has been licensed by the state of California with the Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) since June 2005. The school was granted programmatic accreditation by CAAHEP in November 2007 for the Paramedic Training Program.

Who We Are
EMSTA College is a team enterprise comprised of students, office staff, instructors, and training partners in the community who all work together. Based on the goals and objectives of the institution, EMSTA College conducts program planning to ensure alignment of strategic, operational and training objectives. The utilization of effective planning provides a roadmap that the institution utilizes for accomplishing its goals and objectives. Planning aids the solidification of strategies that are most effective in achieving our goals. Although we understand that plans may inevitably change, it is our goal to ensure that planning properly makes it less likely. The communities of interest that are served by EMSTA College include students, graduates, faculty, sponsor administration, hospital/clinic representatives, physicians, employers, police and fire services, key governmental officials, the public, and nationally accepted standards for roles and functions. The communities of interest support the activities and responsibilities of the institution. The goals of this community are to facilitate communication among educators; create, foster and promote dialogue; produce education events such as community services and employer job fairs; present teaching methods; and communicate the value of EMT and Paramedic education to the community at large.
