The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification course is designed to train an individual to function independently in medical and trauma emergencies.  This course provides the basic knowledge and skills needed to deliver basic life support (BLS) care and is required to progress to more advanced levels of pre-hospital patient care.

This EMT course is a combination of didactic (classroom and on-line modules) and skills instruction and 10 hours clinical experience.  This course will satisfy the requirements set forth by the Virginia Office of EMS to become a certified EMT level provider. In addition to class hours, there will be 10 – 15 hours of homework required each week.  There will be in-class quizzes, every class and take home quizzes for each chapter/topic covered, as well as a mid-term exam and final exam.  

Successful completion of this courses also requires five (5) on-line classes (NIMS 100, 700, 200 and 800, as well as a weapons of mass destruction/haz-mat awareness class).  NO other Haz-Mat certifications can be accepted.  These classes are minimally 3 + hours long.
