EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY

Classroom instruction provides students with the knowledge and background to enter the work force as an EMT-Basic. Students are taught how to assess the nature and extent of injury or illness in order to establish and prioritize procedures that need to be followed as well as develop skills to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation and use semi-automatic defibrillation equipment. Lab sessions provide practice time with basic and specialized equipment and computerized learning tools help students achieve high levels of competency. At the end of the program, students are tested on five core skills. Successful completion of these skills, along with an average grade of 75% in class and passing a comprehensive exam, are necessary to sit for state certification.
