School of EMT | Emergency Medical Technician
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) initiate immediate lifesaving care to critical patients who access emergency medical services (EMS). EMTs possess the basic knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient transportation and function as part of a comprehensive EMS response, under medical oversight. They perform interventions with the basic equipment typically found in an ambulance.
After successful completion of the EMT Course, students are eligible to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians Certification Written and Practical Examinations required to apply for licensure in the State of Michigan as an EMT.
Courses begin each October and run consecutively through May of the following year.
The program is sanctioned by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Preparedness, EMS, and Systems of Care as an EMS Education Program Sponsor.
