California Course Approvals


Emergency Medical Services Authority (EMSA)  

Below are the current letter and certificate approving NSC as meeting the requirements of the State of California EMS Authority. This approval is good until March 31, 2015.

Blended Learning Approved for School Bus Drivers in California
