Completion time: 4-5 months
Start in our LIVE virtual classroom where you'll interact with your instructors and fellow students in real-time as you engage in your emergency medical technician didactic education. All the supporting materials you'll need will be preloaded into your course management system before the first class.
Course curriculum covers anatomy, physiology, patient assessment survey and triage, bleeding control, treatment of shock, oxygen therapy, and more.
Unable to be at your computer during a live lecture? Don't worry! Every class is recorded and archived, so you can get attendance credit when you watch the class in full within five days of the original lecture. And, if you need extra help with a topic, it's always there for your review.
At the end of the didactic portion of the online program students are required to travel to our West Bridgewater, MA campus for six days of intensive skills training and testing. You will be trained to handle a multitude of real-world situations through extensive hands-on training and instruction in our state-of-the-art simulation labs.
On day six, students who successfully complete the didactic and practical portions of the course, will take the skills exam for NREMT EMT certification. Students will then be eligible to take the NREMT written exam in their home state.
Program Schedule:Classes are held online Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:00pm to 10:30pm EST. If you are unable to watch the class live, you have five days from the date of the class to watch the class recording in full to get credit for attendance. View upcoming classes here.
