EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIAN
Emergency Medical Technician is the entry-level course to the Emergency Medical Service profession. Compassion, the ability to work under pressure, calm communication skills and physical strength are all key traits for an EMT. EMTs that work at fire departments and ambulance services are usually the first medical professionals on the scene of an emergency. The Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook for EMT and Paramedics project that job opportunities will grow 23% from now to 2022. If you are interested in becoming a paramedic or fire fighter being an EMT is a required certification for both. Our EMT program is authorized by the NREMT and the Oklahoma Emergency Medical Services division.
Anyone age 16 or older may enroll in a short-term class on a first-come, first-served basis. Certain regulations may apply. Enrollment is taken by the Adult Education/ACD staff Monday through Thursday from 8AM-9:30PM.
