Becoming an EMT is a huge decision that comes with unique responsibilities and the highest of stakes. Everyday our graduates are responding to critical situations where they truly are the difference between life and death. There is no feeling more rewarding than having the family of somebody you saved or the individual themselves seek you out to thank you for performing a life saving service that very few people on this planet are capable of executing. When an EMT responds to an accident, they are joining fire fighters and law enforcement on high risk missions, or are transporting a patient; knowing what to do is only part of the equation. We believe that hands on simulation is essential. This is why we have created a facility that will reproduce lifelike scenarios our students are likely to encounter to ensure our students know what to do and are comfortable doing it.
What is Required to Become an EMT?
An EMT is trained to be the front line of defense when it comes to emergency situations. EMTâ€™s must exhibit competence when supervising emergencies that require the use of all Basic Life Support equipment and skills as outlined United States Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Books.
