    The Emergency Medical Technician program prepares the EMT student
    to provide pre-hospital assessment and care for patients of all ages
    with a variety of medical conditions and traumatic injuries. Areas of
    study include: an introduction to emergency medical services systems,
    roles and responsibilities of EMTs, anatomy and physiology, medical
    emergencies, trauma, special considerations for working in the prehospital
    setting and providing patient transportation. This course is
    physically demanding and requires a studious student focused on
    gaining the knowledge and skills required to pass the EMT Basic exam.
    Clinical observations may be necessary after school hours and would
    require transportation to the site. Student fees will be approximately
    $150 and include CPR, uniform, and required equipment.

    Students must turn 18 by May 1 of their senior year in order to take the EMT course.
