Begin Your Lifesaving Career with Our EMT Training Program

The EMT training program is the foundational step for those looking to become first responders in the emergency medical system. Offering emergency medical technician courses, this program equips students with the necessary skills to provide immediate care at accident scenes and during patient transport to hospitals, under the guidance of advanced medical personnel. EMT basic training covers essential emergency skills, including patient assessment and management of respiratory, cardiac, and trauma emergencies. Before progressing to more advanced training, such as paramedic courses, students must achieve EMT certification.

Accredited EMT Certification: Excellence in Emergency Medical Training

Developed in compliance with standards set by the U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's National Standard Curriculum, and CoAEMSP, our program is accredited by the State of Ohio Department of Public Safety, Division of Emergency Medical Services (since June 2011, OH-22). This accreditation underscores the program's significance, especially since 2013, when all EMS programs were required to affiliate with higher education institutions to ensure the delivery of quality education. For those searching for "EMT training near me," our EMT certification classes offer a direct path to becoming a vital part of the emergency medical services system.
