EMT Program
EMT is the entry-level position in the emergency medical services field. In 3-4 months, you can learn the skills you will need to work as part of a medical response team. EMTs provide basic emergency medical care and transportation to patients who access the EMS system. Medics make a difference, every day. A few of the skills you will learn:
  • Opening the airway and providing artificial ventilation
  • Delivery of semi-automated defibrillation
  • Controlling severe bleeding
  • Dressing and bandaging wounds
  • Splinting injured extremities
  • Delivery and care of infants
  • Emergency vehicle operations
  • Communications and medical record keeping

Course Schedule

Classes for our Summer 2019 semester begin May 2019. For more information, or to sign up, click here.

 

EMT classes are now offered in a HYBRID format.

NEMSA hybrid classes require students to come into the classroom at their local site for an average of eight hours per week. This equals two 4-hour days. The first day students will come in for about four hours to take module exams and complete skills time. The second day students will come in for around four hours of skills time. This means that on average, students spend eight hours per week in class with their classmates and their instructor(s).

In addition to going into campus for about eight hours per week, students will need to spend about 2-3 hours per day working through EMT content delivered via online modules. It is important to note that although this work is completed from home, it is still necessary to spend 2-3 hours per day completing online course materials if students expect to pass the course.
