Our 2020 EMT training schedule is prepared and includes opportunities for traditional EMT training courses as well as our 17 day EMT academy format.
In addition to initial training, the 2020 schedule includes opportunities to build on your EMT training with courses such as wilderness, trauma and tactical programs. We also offer sustainment courses and refreshers for all your certifications.
The EMT academy training program is conducted over 17 days. Students stay onsite for the duration of the course. The EMT academy training program is best suited to the student who is able to make a full time commitment to training. 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.
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 prehospital assessment and care for patients of all ages with a variety of medical conditions and traumatic injuries.
Areas of study include an introduction to emergency medical services systems, roles and responsibilities of EMTs, anatomy and physiology, airway management, assessment of the patient, medical emergencies, trauma, special considerations for working in the prehospital setting, and providing patient transportation.
Utilizing classroom, lab, scenario and clinical rotations the EMT program builds on skills and information in a straight forward manner to create a comprehensive training experience.
Our student profiles cover a wide variety ranging from individuals interested in a career in EMS, college students with an interest in medicine, military medical providers, park services, ski patrol, career change, and some making a commitment to training to qualify for specific jobs.
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.
Class begins on a Thursday with orientation and issuing of ID tag, training material, uniforms, team assignments, room assignments and course overview. Days are usually scheduled for about 10 hours but times vary according to the training objectives for the day.
Sign in is daily from 7:45-8:00 with class beginning at 8:00. A variety of training methods are utilized 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 train 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.
