Program Description:  The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) program prepares students to be an emergency medical care provider in a pre-hospital setting. This includes the skills necessary to provide emergency medical care at a basic life support level with an emergency service or other specialized services. In this two-part course, students will demonstrate proficiency in cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains in accordance with the current guidelines of the credentialing agency. Students will be able to apply operational principles in out-of-hospital environments; demonstrate life-saving care to patients at the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) level, and display professional and ethical behaviors expected of emergency personnel. During the clinical portion of this program, students will have a health-related work-based learning experience that enables the student to apply specialized occupational theory, skills, and concepts. Direct supervision is provided by the clinical professional. 

EMT courses are offered at Richmond, Wharton and Bay City campuses, as well as off-site locations on occasion. Students must follow the EMT application process through the Emergency Medical Services Program which includes a program application and specific entrance requirements.
