The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) is an entry level provider capable of transporting sick and injured patients. The EMT is the basic level needed on every ambulance nationwide. This program prepares the graduate for entry into emergency medical services and healthcare. The courses provide the lecture, lab, and practicum education needed for certification as an EMT-B.

NOTE: Students are required to provide proof of immunization status, a completed health form, a criminal background check and drug screen at the students’ expense. Students are also required to provide proof of health insurance and CPR certification. The American Heart Association Basic Life Support for Healthcare providers and the American Red Cross CPR for Professional Rescuers are the only accepted CPR courses.

The college will not be responsible for any tuition, fees or other costs that may be charged or paid or lost due to incomplete, untimely or unsatisfactory health records, CPR certification, background check or drug screen.  The college is not responsible for the conduct of background checks and drug screenings, or decisions made by other entities as a result of the background check and drug screening requirements.
