Additional Course Information:
The objective of the Basic EMT training program is to improve the quality of pre-hospital emergency care rendered to victims of accidents and sudden illness. This course develops skills in symptom recognition and in all emergency care procedures and techniques that are currently the responsibilities of an EMT providing emergency medical care with a Fire Department or Ambulance Service.
Students learn about acute illnesses, medical emergencies, traumatic emergencies, child birth, rescue extrication, ambulance operations, splinting techniques, communication and documentation, medical legal implications, and how to use a defibrillator.
The course is expected to include a minimum of 150 hours depending on individual sponsor requirements and student needs. The curriculum follows the Federal Department of Transportation guidelines and is taught by a state approved EMT Instructor/Coordinator.
No prior experience or training is required of the course applicant. In order for you to be eligible for the state EMT certification examination, the applicant must:
