Emergency Medical Technology - EMT

EMT Emergency Medical Technology is one course that prepares students to take the National Registry examination to become an EMT-1. A non-credit continuing education course, EMT Refresher, is offered annually through the Corporate and Community Services office and is fee-based. This course is dependent upon sufficient enrollment. Students enrolling in EMT 101 will be required to complete a specific medical exam to include proof of immunizations, TB testing, as well as a drug screening and criminal background check before completing the ambulance ride along. Students should not have the medical exam and background screening until they are given the current forms and instructions by the instructor.
