The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Training Program prepares the student to provide emergency medical care to victims of accidents and sudden illness. Emergency Medical Technicians provide routine and emergency medical care with an ambulance service or fire department, as well as in hospitals and clinics. EMT is the first step in the career of Emergency Medical Services and becoming a Paramedic. Students in this course develop skills in symptom recognition and emergency care procedures and techniques.
After completion of the course, the student is eligible to test with the National Registry of EMTs. Successful completion of this exam enables the student to apply for and gain employment within their scope of practice.
