National EMS Academy 


As Acadian Ambulance, Air Med and Safety Management Systems grew, the need for highly trained emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics became crucial to Acadian’s ongoing success. As a recognized leader in EMS, Acadian’s in-house education department was often asked to provide education services for other EMS agencies. With the expansion of our education capabilities, Acadian launched the National EMS Academy (NEMSA) in 2003.

NEMSA now trains at nine different sites throughout Louisiana and Texas. NEMSA is now fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs, and collaborates with South Louisiana Community College and Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service to educate EMTs and paramedics for agencies throughout the United States.

NEMSA offers entry-level EMS training, continuing education, and refresher courses for a number of EMS career paths, including EMTs and paramedics. An authorized American Heart Association training center, NEMSA holds CPR and emergency cardiovascular care courses year-round.

As a leading resource for emergency medical services professionals who seek excellence in educational offerings, NEMSA strives to produce highly effective curricula and teaching resources while maintaining a commitment to quality research in medical education.
