FAST TRACK EMT PROGRAM

The Fast Track EMT program is an intense, fast-paced, hands on program that covers the entire EMT curriculum over six weeks.  The program will prepare you to provide emergency medical care to victims of accidents and sudden illness.  You will develop skills in symptom recognition, emergency care procedures and techniques considered to be within the responsibilities of an EMT.  Our program consists of 120 hours of classroom and skill training, and 48 hours of clinical time.

EMT certification is required for careers in the Emergency Medical Services.  It also increases your opportunity to obtain positions as Lifeguards, Fire Fighters, Search and Rescue, Ski Patrol, Hospital Technicians and there are many other career options.   EMT certification and work experience are required for those seeking Paramedic training.  It is also a good foundation before furthering your medical training as many doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers began their careers as EMTs.
