The EMT course provides an initial education in the world of emergency medical science. Introductory and general information in a variety of medical fields and how to perform the most basic, but critical, life-saving skills will be studied. The EMT course is a 228-hour course. The course includes a classroom portion (didactic) that presents necessary information about medical problems and treatments, a lab portion (psychomotor) where hands-on skills are practiced, and shifts on an ambulance for a field observation lab. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be eligible to test at the national and state level to earn the EMT certification, which allows students to operate and work as an EMT in such places as on an ambulance, emergency room, urgent care, or other places.
CVCC offers two forms of EMT classes. Curriculum (CU) courses are typically day classes, and upon completion of the course, students are awarded college credit and the chance to test for the state and/or national certification. The Continuing Education course will not be awarded any college credit. However, registered students who are in good standing with an appropriate fire, rescue, or EMS agency are eligible for a fee-waiver and are eligible to take the state or national certification test. Both classes will be taught primarily in a seated classroom with some online work required.
Price varies greatly depending on type of class and current tuition rates. For the most up-to-date pricing, please contact the EMS/EMT program by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
