Emergency Medical Technician
EMT Class Overview
This class is designed for students seriously interested in medicine – specifically emergency medicine. Students enrolled in this program will receive instruction in the fields of pre-hospital and emergency medical training. This program is an intense study of the human body and emergency medical treatment required outside the hospital setting. Students will receive intensive hands-on instruction in anatomy and physiology, emergency first aid, bleeding control, shock, cardiac arrest management, airway management, and patient treatment at accident scenes. Classroom study and hands-on Labs will challenge the student both academically and physically. Upon successful completion of the program through written, practical, and clinical performance objectives established by the Michigan Department of Consumer & Industry Services, students will be able to take the EMT-Basic National Registry Emergency Medical Technician (NREMT) exam to become an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). Students will be required to complete 50 hours of clinical training in a fire department or ambulance service.
