17-Day EMT Academy
What is an EMT?
EMT care is the initial emergency responder level able to treat and transport patients. The Emergency Medical Technician course prepares the EMT student to provide pre-hospital assessment and care for patients of all ages with a variety of medical conditions and traumatic injuries.
The EMT academy training program is conducted over 17 days. Students stay onsite for the duration of the course. Students enrolled in the EMT program gain the information and skill training necessary to initiate, formulate and maintain a treatment plan for sick and injured patients at the Basic Life Support (BLS) level of care.
Areas of study include an introduction to emergency medical services systems, roles and responsibilities of EMT’s, anatomy and physiology, airway management, assessment of the patient, medical emergencies, trauma, special considerations for working in the pre-hospital setting, and providing patient transportation.
We utilize a variety of teaching-learning methods. These methods may include, but are not limited to, assigned readings, presentations, discussion, critical thinking exercises, labs, class activities, scenarios and clinical rotations. The EMT program builds on skills and information in a straight forward manner to create a comprehensive training experience.
We utilize an academy format with an expectation to follow guidelines for time and task just as you would if you were working a shift at a firehouse or EMS facility. Students are placed into “squads” and are given a more hands-on style learning experience with scenarios and assignments.
We strive to provide our students with so much more than how to pass a test but rather to work and live in the EMS field.

We use a variety of training methods from day to day. Some days begin with an exercise, some with a quiz or test and others go right into a new topic. You can expect to spend time in lecture necessary to training concepts, terminology and test.
Do expect to spend a lot of time up and moving in skills demonstrations, scenarios, exercises and practice.
Clinical rotations in the hospital and on the ambulance are scheduled throughout the course. These assignments are scheduled during a lab session so you won’t miss out on any classroom information. Lab information is repeated and practiced several times throughout the course.
The role of a health care provider requires a commitment to lifelong learning, good mental and physical health, keeping an open mind to new ideas and trends, as well as maintaining expertise in basic life support skills. You are here to learn and should be dedicated to the introductory level of training in emergency medical services. This course is demanding and can seem fast paced. We have a long history of success in EMS training and we are dedicated to your success.
