Emergency Medical Technology

For the health-care minded who prefers to work outside a traditional office setting, an EMT is often first on the scene of an emergency situation. You'll work in what's often a high-stress environment and be a vital part of the care team for the sick and injured. You'll be immersed in the language of medicine, rapid assessment and planning, physical examination techniques, note writing, patient confidentiality, and more.

Learn the skills needed to provide medical support and transport to injured or critically ill patients in through Tri-County’s Emergency Medical Technology (EMT) program. When working in a first-responder situation, such as an ambulance service or fire department, EMTs are dispatched to the scene of the medical emergency, which can be as varied as a car accident, a fire, a falling injury, a animal bite, a shooting or stabbing, a birth, or a person who's suddenly fallen ill. Once at the scene of the emergency, EMTs assess the situation, determine if additional assistance is needed, and, if necessary, order the additional help. The degree and certificate programs prepare students to test for national certifications.
