Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)

Emergency Medical Technicians have the skills and basic knowledge to stabilize and transport patients, whether it’s a non-emergency or life-threatening emergency. EMTs provide emergency medical care and transportation to critical and emergent patients, outside of a hospital.

Emergency Medical Technicians function under medical oversight within the EMS response system. EMTs use basic equipment typically found on an ambulance to provide interventions between the scene of an emergency and the health care system.

NREMT COVID-19 Exception

For EMTs due to recertify on March 31, 2022: NREMT has made an exception and has removed the limits on Distributed Education. This exception does not apply if your certification has lapsed or if you failed the NREMT exam three times and need a refresher to retest. The EMT courses we offer will have an F3 or F5 option through the last week of March, but will end when there is no longer time to finish it by March 31, 2022. Please contact us with any questions.
