With nearly 165 hours of intensive class time, this comprehensive Emergency Medical Technician course meets the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT) requirement of instruction and practice necessary for the student to sit for the two-part NREMT examination. Successful completion of this course and, by extension, passing the NREMT cognitive and psychomotor examination, ensures EMT certification through the National Registry of EMTs and qualifies the candidate for Massachusetts certification.
Areas of instruction covered through lectures and hands-on practice include: legal issues; general pharmacology; respiratory and cardiovascular emergencies; OB/GYN emergencies; musculoskeletal, head, and spine trauma; soft tissue injuries; hazardous materials; ambulance operations; emergency medical techniques for children; and scene safety.
Evaluation is based on class participation and performance on class exams, quizzes, and practical exercises.

- Be free from any physical or mental defect or disease which might impair his/her ability to provide emergency care within the scope of the EMT’s training and responsibilities, or which might jeopardize the health of another member of the class.
Tuition for the EMT Program is $750.00. This includes the required text book and mandatory BLS CPR for the Health Care Provider class and course completion card. Additional books may be suggested to support the current material. Participants will also be responsible for any additional fees required by the National Registry and Commonwealth of Massachusetts. A non-refundable application fee of $200.00 is due with the application, with the remaining tuition due by day one of the program.
Note: this program does not certify the student as an EMT at the completion of the course. Successful completion of the course will allow the student to be eligible to take the National Registry EMT cognitive and psychomotor examinations.
You may cancel your registration at any time prior to the first day of class and receive a full refund less the $200.00 application fee.
