Less-Than-One-Year Certificate of Completion

The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Career Pathways Certificate is designed to train and educate emergency medical services professionals to excel in meeting the needs of the community. Emergency medical service professionals respond to medical emergencies by providing immediate care and transportation to the ill and injured.

EMTs conduct basic, noninvasive interventions to reduce morbidity and mortality in acute out-of-hospital emergencies. All EMTs have emergency medical responder (EMR) capabilities along with additional skills associated with patient transport. In many places, EMTs provide the majority of out-of-hospital care, and in some places, the highest level of care. Licensure as an EMT requires completion of an accredited course of study. After successful completion of all requirements for the EMT Certificate of Completion (Basic or Intermediate) students are eligible to apply to take the respective state licensure exams.
