STOP! Please Read Before Applying!
The Broward Health hospital district is mandating changes that will affect you! Currently, Broward Health has entered into an agreement with American Data Bank for the purpose of receiving and validating hospital requirements for all students wishing to complete clinical rotations with a Broward Health hospital. This will impact your physical exam, background check and drug screening process along with the appropriate fees.
The Coral Springs Regional Institute of Public Safety (CSRIPS) does not receive financial or any other benefit from the agreement between American Data Bank and Broward Health. Because we are just now receiving this information, we are working diligently to redefine our application process for you so that you can better understand what will be required during our application process and what will be required by American Data Bank to satisfy the requirements set forth by Broward Health.
Please be patient as we work through this process and continue to monitor this section for important updates.
Fall 2018 Term Only: Please proceed with the application steps below. You will be provided information on how to complete your profile with American Data Bank and obtain your Level 2 background check and drug screening after registration with a deadline to complete.
Terms after Fall 2018: This page will be updated by October 15, 2018 with a new process and requirements to complete your American Data Bank profile and completion of your hospital documents.

BECOMING A FLORIDA EMT
Deciding to enroll at the Coral Springs Regional Institute of Public Safety to pursue your dream of becoming a Firefighter/EMT/Paramedic in the State of Florida is a huge step. It can be an overwhelming journey if not planned out properly. To help you succeed we will provide information on a career path that may work best for you. We offer all the required courses that you will need in order to become a successful candidate for a position as a Firefighter in Florida. Most agencies located in the South East (Broward, Dade & Palm Beach) will require candidates to be Firefighter/Paramedic certified as a minimum however other regions will hire Firefighter/EMT’s or just Firefighters. This means that you will need to complete EMT, Paramedic and Firefighter I & II and become State certified in all three courses. This can be accomplished at CSRIPS. Now you need to decide whether to start with the medical courses, EMT and then Paramedic, or the Fire course, Firefighter I & II. The information we provide can help you determine which will be best for you. Please review each course to assist with making the best decision for you to be successful, remember this process can take up to two (2) years to complete. Good Luck!
