In an emergency, EMT’s are typically dispatched by a 911 operators to the scene, where they often work with police and fire fighters. An EMT-Basic, also known as an EMT, cares for patients at the scene of an accident and while transporting patients by ambulance to the hospital under the direction of more highly trained medical personnel.

This program will train students to respond as an EMT, which has the emergency skills to assess a patient’s condition and manage respiratory, cardiac, and trauma emergencies. Individuals interested in employment with Law Enforcement, Fire Fighting, or Emergency Medicine must be EMT certified. Training includes clinical and classroom hands-on training.

Topics include HAZMAT awareness, basic first aid, patient assessment, triage, multi-casualty, emergent and non-emergent patient moves (with and without CNS injury), airway management, CPR, shock & bleeding control, and more. Students can become key members of the EMS system.

Concurrent Enrollment: Students who pass the state certification can earn 9 hours of credit at some state colleges, if currently registered and enrolled with a minimum of 3 hours. Students must meet with the EMT Course Coordinator for college credit requirements and/or national certification.
