Emergency medical technician is the entry level of prehospital emergency medical provider. EMTs provide rapid in-field treatment and transport to higher medical providers. They work in conjunction with paramedics, nurses, physicians, and other members of the health care team. Career options are available in urban and rural settings, primarily in conjunction with fire departments, private ambulances, or other rescue services. When operating in the prehospital environment, EMTs act in accordance with protocols and procedures set by their system's physician medical director.
The 300 hour EMT Certification Program includes classroom instruction, hospital rotations with an emphasis on emergency department experience, and emergency ambulance experience. You'll receive instruction in basic life support, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, automated external defibrillation, physical assessment, bandaging and splinting, traction splinting, spinal immobilization, airway management, oxygen therapy, and other noninvasive procedures.
Graduates of the program are eligible to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians' (NREMT) EMT cognitive exam that also serves as the state certification exam.
