Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)
Health Sciences Pathway
Students in this class are dually enrolled and have the opportunity to earn both high school and college credit. Basic EMT provides students with instruction in basic emergency medical technology. The EMT course is a study of the topics and skills necessary to make lifesaving interventions and stabilize patients during transport to a medical facility. The course involves lecture and practical skills labs and introduces the clinical component of EMT education, the minimum level of training required for work on a transporting ambulance. Second semester students will complete clinical hours with a local ambulance service and healthcare agencies. Upon successful completion of this course, students are eligible to sit for the national Registry Basic EMT licensing examination.
