Develop foundational skills to treat sick or injured patients using basic emergency medical equipment.
This program will prepare you to provide pre-hospital emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical services (EMS) system. You will acquire 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 a critical link between the scene of an emergency and the health care system. Emergency Medical Technicians function as part of a comprehensive EMS response system, under medical oversight. EMTs perform interventions with the basic equipment typically found on an ambulance. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be eligible to take the National Registry of Emergency Technician exams.
