Emergency Medical Technician


Would you like to be the first one to respond to actual emergency situations in your community? An Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) is the first line of pre-hospital care.

Typically, an EMT is one of the first responders on the scene and will assess the nature and extent of the injuries or illness, provide the appropriate emergency care and determine transportation needs. EMTs manage airway and breathing problems, control bleeding, treat shock and more as they stabilize patients before transporting them to medical facilities.

This course is designed for the individual who wants to become an EMT or get his/her EMT Certification as a prerequisite to attending the Paramedic Academy.
