The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) is frequently the first responder to an emergency scene. To prepare these providers, a competency-based educational program composed of didactic, clinical, and practical instruction in basic emergency care was developed. This course prepares the EMT to bring expert emergency medical care to victims of acute illness or injury, stabilize their condition, and transport them safely and expeditiously to the hospital.

The EMT typically provides pre-hospital care in a wide variety of circumstances. This course offers basic training in all aspects of emergency medical care in the EMT scope of practice. The EMT is prepared to administer basic life support to victims of emergencies, minimize patient suffering, prevent further injury, and reduce recuperative time. EMT classes are offered at

  • HealthONE EMS in Englewood
  • North Suburban Medical Center (NSMC) in Thornton
