Emergency Medical Technician Basic Certificate (EMT.BASIC)

This certificate prepares students for the EMT-B State Licensure Test. The extensive curriculum includes medical aspects, legal terminology, pharmacology, childbirth, and life saving techniques, such as CPR. The EMT candidate will participate in hands-on training in clinical and practical applications in hospital settings and field time, such as auto extrications. Testing is done periodically in the classroom, as well as practical settings.

The Emergency Medical Technician Basic Certificate has specific admission requirements.

Admission to the College does not guarantee admission to the program.

Students will be notified of status by mail after November 1st for Fall and June 1st for Spring. The SSC EMT program does not wait list applicants from one year to the next; therefore, applicants who are not selected must reapply for successive years.
