Our EMT program is designed for students interested in pursuing a career in pre-hospital emergency care. It will prepare the student to handle emergencies utilizing skills that they have learned in class.
EMT program is a course based on the National EMS Agenda for the Future and will prepare the student to function in three areas:
Controlling life-threatening situations, including maintaining anopen airway, providing articial ventilation, delivering semi-automatic debrillation, controlling severe bleeding, administering a limited number of medications, and treating shock.
Stabilizing non-life-threatening situations, including dressing and bandaging wounds, splinting injured extremities, delivering and caring for infants, and dealing with the psychological stress of patient, family members, neighbors, and colleagues.
Using non-medical skills, such as driving, maintaining supplies and equipment in proper order, using good communication skills, keeping records, knowing proper extrication techniques, and dealing with legal issues.
Our program goes above and beyond the standard curriculum and minimum hourly requirements, allowing our students to receive the training and experience needed to be ready for the real world of prehospital emergency care.
