Emergency Medical Technician

Looking for a new career opportunity? As an EMT student, you will learn how to assess medical and trauma patients, manually ventilate, place supraglottic airways, control bleeding, and splint. We will assist you in developing skills and compassion for people in their time of need. You will utilize your critical thinking skills, learning to act quickly and decisively, and enjoy a work environment where no two days are the same.

Developed by the U.S. DOT, the EMT curriculum is designed to enable you to become an effective Emergency Medical Technician. In addition to the time spent in the classroom, you will have to complete a designated number of clinical hours in the ambulance.

Paramedic (EMT-P)

The Paramedic program builds on your EMT skills to develop advanced cognitive, psychomotor, and affective abilities. As a Paramedic, you will have the opportunity to administer advanced cardiac life support, advanced airway procedures, administer medications and establish venous access, and utilize your knowledge to make a difference in the lives of others.

Our Paramedic program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).

Medical First Responder (MFR)

MFRs are the first on-scene to provide critical life saving measures. They are the backbone of EMS. In this class you will learn life saving airway maneuvers, bleeding control, CPR and splinting. As an MFR, you will be the first person to make that first impression in providing initial prehospital care.

Developed by the U.S. DOT, the MFR curriculum is designed to enable you to become an effective Medical First Responder. Time spent in the classroom will prepare you to manage many emergencies until an ambulance arrives.
