About Emergency Medical Technician
The EMT course 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.
This course not only involves lecture and practical skill labs but also introduces the clinical component of EMS education, the minimum level of training required for work on a transporting ambulance.
During second semester, students will complete clinical hours with a local ambulance service and healthcare agencies. Upon successful completion of this course, students are eligible for the National Registry Basic EMT licensing examination.
