The EMT Program is a one year course. In this program, students will learn how to treat sick and injured patients in the emergency setting. The course consists of both didactic and psychomotor skills. The students will learn how to safely respond to and treat patients that may be experiencing medical emergencies such as strokes, heart attacks, COPD, and allergic reactions, to name a few. They will also learn to treat victims of traumatic events such as motor vehicle crashes, falls, and environmental emergencies to name a few. The student will learn to properly use an array of medical equipment found on ambulances.
Prerequisite: Must be 16 years of age by October 1.
