 OBJECTIVE                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Emergency  Medical  Technicians  provide  out of hospital emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical services (EMS) system. EMTs have the basic knowledge and skills necessary to stabilize and safely transport patients ranging from non-emergency and routine medical transports to life threatening emergencies. Emergency Medical Technicians function as part of a comprehensive EMS response system, under medical oversight. Emergency Medical Technicians perform interventions with the basic equipment typically found on an ambulance. Emergency Medical Technicians are a critical link between the scene of an emergency and the health care system. The Objective of the Emergency Medical Technician program is to prepare competent entry level students in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains.  Within the fast-paced and constantly adapting world of Emergency Medical Services, the Emergency Medical Technician may find themselves performing skills during on-scene treatment, in an ambulance, helicopter or on an off-shore oil rig. 

DESCRIPTION                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    The program is compliant with the EMS Education Standards providing graduates who successfully complete the program the ability to test for the Emergency Medical Technician certification with the National Registry or equivalent examination. 

EXTERNSHIP                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Externship/Field courses are a critical component of this program. Students are supervised by trained and certified professionals during such courses, and they must know there is a zero tolerance policy for inappropriate and/or unsafe actions or behaviors. Essential documentation of patient care is also a critical element of clinical courses, and satisfactory verbal and written communication in clinical activities is a must. Students are required to complete the required externship hours and other related learning activities prior to graduation. Students are not paid for work performed at the externship site. 

ACADEMIC PROGRESSION                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Students must have a valid driver’s permit/license in order to be admitted into the program. In addition to meeting the standards set in the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy, students must complete all concentration courses with a minimum grade of ―C+ to be considered passing. Any concentration course below a grade of ―C+ must be retaken. A student can attempt a concentration course no more than two times. Any student who fails to pass a concentration course after two attempts is subject to dismissal from the program.

To gain such certification, students must demonstrate their competence within the discipline by passing the examinations of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians. The registry exams include a computer-based cognitive component and a practical component.
