National EMS Academy 

With campuses throughout Louisiana and Texas, the National EMS Academy offers entry-level, continuing education, and refresher courses for a number of EMS career pathways, including EMTs and paramedics.

The Academy was formed as a collaborative effort between Acadian Ambulance Service, South Louisiana Community College and Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service with the primary objective of providing the education and training necessary for individuals seeking to enter the emergency medical services industry.

Each year, NEMSA continues to exceed the national average pass rate for EMTs and paramedics. In 2014, NEMSA's pass rate surpassed the national average for EMTs, 86 percent to 75 percent and paramedics 88 percent to 85 percent. With seven campuses in Louisiana and two in Texas, the Academy has trained almost 2 percent of all newly nationally registered paramedics in the nation and has produced 3,428 EMTs and 1,490 paramedics since its inception in 2003.
