EMR & EMT/PARAMEDIC

Paramedic Students Hailed As Heroes

Central Tech’s Paramedic class is in partnership with Kiamichi Technology Center.

DRUG SCREENING:
Students must undergo a pre-clinical drug screening. A positive test or refusal will result in immediate termination from the program. Per federal regulations, medical marijuana remains a drug listed in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act. It remains unacceptable for any safety‐sensitive employee subject to drug testing to hold a marijuana license.

BACKGROUND CHECK:
Under the policies of National Accreditation, an OSBI background check on each student is performed. If you have felonies you may not be eligible for this program. 

VACCINATIONS:
Although Central Tech does not discriminate against students who do or do not receive the Covid vaccine, the vaccine is mandated by most clinical sites. The few sites that do not require the Covid vaccine require a medical or religious exemption. 

Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)

This program prepares EMTs to use advanced life support skills such as patient intubation and IVs used in the pre-hospital emergency care setting.

Must have current NREMT-EMT license and CPR-BLS.

Class Schedule: Monday and Wednesday classes are on campus. Friday classes are virtual.
