Emergency Medical Technician


The Emergency Medical Technician program provides training for out-of-hospital emergency medical care and transportation of critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical services (EMS) system. An Emergency Medical Technician has the basic knowledge and skills necessary to stabilize and safely transport patients ranging from non-emergency and routine medical transports to life-threatening emergencies. An Emergency Medical Technician functions as part of a comprehensive EMS response system, under medical oversight, and performs interventions with the basic equipment typically found in an ambulance. An Emergency Medical Technician is a critical link between the scene of an emergency and the health care system.
Students will receive instruction in both a classroom setting as well as a lab. Following successful completion of the program, graduates will be recommended to sit for the licensure exam. This program supports the Bridgerland Technical College's mission to deliver competency-based, employer-guided career and hands-on technical education to the Bear River region.
