Emergency Medical Technician
The Emergency Medical Technology (EMT) Program provides students with necessary skills to respond to emergency calls, to provide efficient and immediate care to critically injured persons, and to transport patients to a medical facility. Students receive instruction in anatomy and physiology and patient assessment. Students who successfully complete the program will be eligible to take the National Registry Exam for Emergency Medical Technicians. The course includes a 12-hour clinical rotation in an emergency department and a 12-hour ride-along with an ambulance service. An interview is required as part of the admission to the program. Each applicant must also take the TABE Reading Test during the first class. This course may be offered outside the school-day schedule to accommodate the work schedule of the paramedic instructors involved.
