Program / Admission Details

Program Description
The Emergency Medical Technician program provides instruction on out-of-hospital emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical services (EMS) system. EMTs have the basic knowledge and skills necessary to stabilize and safely transport patients ranging from non-emergency and routine medical transports to life threatening emergencies. Emergency Medical Technicians are part of a comprehensive EMS response system, under medical oversight. Emergency Medical Technicians perform interventions with the basic equipment typically found in an ambulance. Emergency Medical Technicians are a critical link between the scene of an emergency and the health care system.

The Emergency Medical Technician program is open to qualified high school and adult students who meet the following requirements:

  • High school students must be seniors
  • Students must be 18 in order to test for state licensure
