Emergency Medical Technician Program

What's Next?EMT preparing an EKG/heart monitor.

The EMT program is a 180-hour mix of classroom lectures and skills labs that prepares the student for a job as an EMT provider. This level of care is the minimum staffing requirement needed to drive or work in the back of an ambulance.

The student learns how to properly assess and treat medical and trauma patients. The basis for the field treatments depends on a solid patient assessment to determine what is wrong with the patient. Though the EMT has numerous tools at their disposal, they may find themselves wanting to advance beyond the EMT level and become an Advanced EMT or Paramedic.

The knowledge gained and the skills learned in the EMT program, enable students to pursue their goal of continuing on to the next level of training and care.
