Program Purpose: The Emergency Medical Technician program will provide students with the practical knowledge and skills to be prepared for the National Registry Emergency Medical Technician certification examination.
The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) functions as an entry-level emergency healthcare team member and provider of emergency care. Upon successful completion of this one semester program, the student is eligible for the two part National Registry Emergency Medical Technician (NREMT) certification examination; if all other state and age requirements (at least 18 years of age) are met at the time of exam. Students must have an American Heart Association CPR for Healthcare Provider course completed prior to enrolling in the course.
It is highly recommended that the most current text book of EMERGENCY CARE by Limmer and O’Keefe be brought to the 1st class meeting.
